Last weekend I went home for a wedding. I judge weddings by the bride and groom's affection for each other and the quality of the bride's cake; happily, this event scored high in both categories.
The night before the wedding, my sister had promised to host a Monkey Ball to welcome me to town. Accordingly, she baked these adorable and delicious monkey cupcakes, as presented by Tailey the kindergarten classroom monkey and Gonzago the owl:
The cake is banana, and the frosting is chocolate. She used chocolate disks for the ears, tiny M&Ms for the eyes, and vanilla snaps (cut in half) for the monkeymouth. Yum! Thank you, Becca!
