Sock Monkey Birthday Cake
This was a sock monkey cake for a little boy's 1st birthday. This is my 2nd fondant covered cake. The flavor is a dark chocolate devil's food cake with oreo cookie italian meringue buttercream. The sock monkey is made from gum paste.
I had fun doing this, and made it with some of the best tasting fondant that I could get my hands on. But.... still.... I am not, nor will ever be sold on fondant. It looks cool, but is really a waste of resources since most people choose not to eat it.
I used fondarific, and the good things about it, is that it DID hold up in the fridge just fine!
