Monkey Cupcakes

We weren’t sure if the monkey cake(s) were going to be enough to feed the crowd at the party, so on the same night, the dream team also made these monkey cupcakes from the blog yanowhatimean. To keep things simple, we used the exact same cake batter and frosting mix. Of course, my Mom still had to visit several stores to find the mini-Nilla wafers.

It took us a few tries to get things right, but then we were on a roll and formed an assembly line. We found it best to apply a relatively thick layer of frosting in order to embed the cookies. Plus, has anyone ever complained that a cupcake had too much frosting? Then, we used decorating gel to make the ears, nose, and mouth. The final product was cute, and the cupcakes were a hit with the kids at the party.

  1. Those are so cute!!! And I feel you on worrying about there not being enough food. My daughter's 2nd bday party is this weekend and I'm racking my brain on what/how much to make.
