Monkey Box Birthday Cake with Balloons
We made this monkey themed specialty cake with yellow and blue stripes and polka dots, for a first birthday party at the Hilton Garden Hotel in Edison NJ. The 3" bottom tier is chocolate fudge cake with Madagascar vanilla bean filling, and the extra tall 6" second tier is red velvet cake with cream cheese filling.
I sculpted a monkey with chocolate cake that burst out of the top of the cake and inserted fondant ballons behind with the birthday boy's name. He also holds a birthday gift and wears a party hat.
