Bake, cool and frost the cupcakes with chocolate frosting. I wish I had a wonderful cake recipe for you here but to this day I still haven’t found a homemade cake recipe that I like so I still use box cakes. (Please comment if you have one you love!)
The day of GiGi’s party, I ran a little short on chocolate frosting so I decided white frosting “bears” would be just as cute as monkeys. Amazing what a little color change can do.
To go with the monkey cupcakes, I took the same idea for GiGi’s smash cake. I stacked two 6″ round cakes and smothered them with chocolate frosting. I bake a single sugar cookie for the face and used big Nilla wafers for the eyes and ears.
Well, I think the cupcakes were a success!
