Curious George Birthday Cake

Oh that curious little monkey!! As a child of the 80s i was super excited about this cake! It was one of my favorite books! We started off the summer with this fabulous cake.  I wanted to do something old school but that would still work for a current 2 year olds party.  So I came up with this simple yet kinda cool design.

The cake was yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Covered in fondant. I do admit i bought the little Curious George figurine, but other than that and the balloon strings, everything is edible.

I LOVE the balloons, although it took quite a while to get them positioned. I had bought those metal cake decorations from Duff Goldman’s line, thinking, oh he does this all the time, i should buy the real thing. Well i can say man they were STURDY, which of course made them a pain to bend any other way or cut. I found myself digging through the hubby’s tools circa 1 am looking for his wire cutters lol.  It was quite a site lol. I have to say all the hard work in the middle of  the night paid off. They were super cute and worth the work!

We are happy to report that they loved the cake! Here’s to the most fabulous curious little monkey!!! Happy Birthday Sara! :)
