Madeline and Gavino helped me make the pineapple cake for Erik's birthday cake today, and later in the afternoon, E was happy to help sample the chocolate buttercream frosting and the pineapple custard cream filling!
I think Mr. Monkey looks pretty good, and that he's got more personality than Martha's cake because of his imperfections... it looks more like he has fur, and he looks happier too (I didn't use her recipe, just the great idea for the cake shape). And, thanks to Rochelle for making sure the cake didn't burn while I ran to the store this afternoon! Happy 2nd birthday to our very own naughty little monkey!!
