This two tiered choc mud cake was made for our friend Ashliegh who celebrated her 18th birthday over the weekend. The cake was actually purple but has turned out looking a bit blue in my photos...the request was for something purple, chocolate and monkey so this is the design I came up with!
The vine wrapped up onto the top and I scattered the leaves all around the cake.
The monkey is made of chocolate fondant and the star on the wand I dipped in silver edible glitter which came up really sparkly! The spots on the 18 I cut out with the end of a piping tip, if you don't have a set of circle cutters I find my metal piping tips work just as good :)
I also glittered around the edges of the little skirt and the top of the crown...
I added a little fondant bannana...
...and the tail coming out from under the skirt.
I will add these photos and more to my facebook albums.
Happy 18th Birthday Ash!
