Monkey Cake for Lucas!

Sweet Lucas turned one and a delicious and extremely special cake was in order.  After a consultation, Lucas' mom and dad decided that this super cute monkey design (inspired by Whipped Bakeshop) was perfect for their "little monkey"!  The flavour for this two tiered cake was double almond (dense almond cake, almond dacquoise, apricot preserves and rum Swiss meringue buttercream) and the cake was decorated with chocolate and vanilla fondant circles, stripes and monkeys!

Of course, children would be in attendance and they needed something special too!  These adorable mini chocolate cupcakes were frosted in chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream and topped with chocolate and vanilla fondant monkeys, in keeping with the theme.

Lucas' mother was thrilled with the outcome and told me "the cake was delicious!  It was definitely a highlight of the party, and had my guests talking."  It was a pleasure to create such a sweet cake for such a sweet boy.  Happy birthday, Lucas!
