Born to be Wild!

While I was in California my sister-in-law had a baby shower and my mom was put in charge of making the cake. My sister is doing a jungle theme for the baby's room and for the shower, so my mom asked me to come up with some ideas for the cake. We ended up making the cake together, my mom, myself and my littlest sister. We had a lot of fun shaping the fondant for the cake.
Here is a close up of the topper, all made out of fondant! We decided on a monkey because who can resist such an animal. My little sister had the idea for the Binky in the mouth. My mom saw a bear that was made to look like a teddy bear so we kind of went with it and turned the bear into a monkey. On the hinges of the arms we put some pearl stick pins to make a joint. I think it turned out pretty cute myself.

That is the coolest cake! I love the shape and everything- you're going to have to teach me how to use fondant!
