I’ve shared pics of this Jungle 1st Birthday Cake & Smash Cake before (in this PicMonkey tutorial), but today I’m finally getting around to sharing all the details!
So let’s get started!!
I used Satin Ice Brown fondant to do the vines and the monkey, but everything else was homemade marshmallow fondant. I used leaf cutters from the Wilton Gum Paste flowers set to do all of the leaves and then veiners from these JEM Leaf Veiner sets to give them the textured detail.
I used a little monkey cutter from this Cutie Jungle Cookie Cutters set by Autumn Carpenter… except I added the long tail to hang on the vine. The borders (for both tiers) were done with my largest silicone pearl border mold.
For James’ name, I used the alphabet cookie cutters from BrownCookie.com that I talked about here. I find myself using those cutters more and more and I just love them!!
And that’s it… do you have any questions about this cake or smash cake? Leave me a comment if you do and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
