Monkey Cupcakes



My son turned one last week. For his birthday I came up with these monkey cupcakes.


I frosted the cupcakes with chocolate frosting and used Nilla Wafers for the face and mini Nilla Wafers for the ears. The eyes are made from mini marshmallows. I used a black jell pen for the nose, mouth and eye centers.

It was very simple and I'm pleased with how they turned out. My three year old had a bast helping me and creating her own monkeys too.

  4. My 10 year old daughter wants a "monkey" birthday party. These might just be what we serve the guests and the birthday girl herself!!!!

  5. How cute!!! My son turns one in a few weeks. I was planning on doing an ocean "ONE"derland but I may have to reconsider. These are just too adorable to pass up.
