Monkey Cupcakes!!

Brace yourself for some serious cuteness:

I made these little monkey cupcakes for a little man named Luke and his 1st birthday party this past weekend. So cute! The white cupcakes are white chocolate with a buttercream frosting, and the chocolate cupcakes are topped with chocolate frosting and entirely edible chocolate monkey faces.

I used this technique (used successfully by the one and only Bakerella and my talented friend, Kara) which Bakerella attributes to The Whimsical Bakehouse which I have got to get a copy of immediately!

It seems there would be almost limitless uses for this simple decorating technique. I love that the little monkey faces are entirely edible too!

Happy 1st Birthday, Luke!

I really like these monkey cupcakes. I've been meaning to make some lately, but I haven't been shopping for brown gel dye. Good job!
