Last weekend I gladly designed this playful monkeys’ tree cake for a kid’s second birthday party. It was composed by 38 vanilla tiny cupcakes covered with buttercream and sugarpaste.
Instead of carving a cake to give a specific shape, this kind of composition consists of adding cupcakes to a cake board, creating the desired 2D shape and decorating according to your idea.
I made three shades of green to ice the top of the tree and a yummy chocolate buttercream to pipe the trunk. Some cupcakes were covered in sugarpaste in order to make the monkeys, the balloons and the present. I used modelling paste to model small details such as the bananas and the bow.
His mother also asked me for some Elmo cupcakes, which I happily made after finishing the playful monkeys. I enjoyed decorating both designs so much!
I’m so looking forward to creating more funny cupcake compositions!!
See you soon.
