Hi, my name is Paul Delagnes, cake designer at the Bread Basket Cake Company in Camarillo, and I'm gonna show you how to do a monkey-themed cake. We're gonna show you how to do decorate it. So you're gonna need a base cake. On this occasion I did a light blue, so we're gonna do more of a baby shower theme cake. Some lime green to make the leaves, some light color for making the face of the monkey and the darker monkey color brown. So we'll just do the ears and the rest of the face and everything. So what you do, you get your cake, make sure that it's nice and clean up and ready to go, and then you start working with your fondant. You do the, I recommend you do the leaves before, that way they're a little bit hard, you can, they'll be more manageable, and then you start working on the monkey. So, you get a little piece of fondant, make it like, try to make a shape of a face, like a monkey face. So you've just gotta flatten it, and then you get the lighter color one, and make the other part, the inside part of the monkey, the lighter color part of this kid. You start shaping that, and then you just put them together on the monkey, on the chocolate that you started with. Get a little bit for the nose, grab a pen, mark the eyes. You can always make a smiley face on it. When you're finished with that, then that's when you're actually gonna start decorating the cake. You start putting the leaves, and then you put a monkey, and then you can make like a jungle fun cake to do. This is how you do a monkey-themed decorating cake.
