Rated 5 out of 5 by brandeanne from I posted this review under the cupcake instructions, but it really belongs here. I have made these fondant monkeys for 2 different cakes, a jungle themed cake and a Diego cake (the monkeys were the Bobo brothers). The instuctions give details about the relative size of head, body, and limbs. This was very useful - I didn't have to make several test monkeys to get the proportions correct. The monkeys are relatively easy to make, but a bit time consuming, hence the medium difficulty rating. The final figures were very cute & very well received by all who saw the cakes. I made sitting and standing monkeys. To keep all limbs (including tail) in place while they dried, I used kleenex to keep the figures in the correct position. Try to make them several days before the cake is needed so they have adequate time to dry. However, I'm a professional procrastinator & I've made them just 2 days ahead & then left a fan blowing on them till I needed to pack them up & that worked just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jayna32606 from I took the monkey idea and made it a sock monkey for a friends party. I sat it on a oval cake with cut outs of flowers, leaves and circles. All of this was made with vibrabt fondant colors. A confetti fun cake mix with cherry flavored buttercream frosting.
