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!
