How to Make a Monkey Birthday Cake

Bake a square cake the size that you need. Ice the cake in white icing using a cake spatula and making sure the surface is smooth.

Let it set about 15 to 20 minutes to dry.

With an icing filled bag and round tip, size #5, draw the monkey picture on the cake top.

Using green food color spray (also known as color mist) spray the bottom background on the cake top to resemble trees in the background.

Now use a blue food color spray and spray the sky in the background leaving some white areas for the clouds.
