Pink and Green Monkey Topsy Turvy Fondant Birthday Cake

Courtney and I are very proud of this one!  It is for Courtney’s friend’s Selsa’s baby girl Yocelynn who turned 2.  Selsa sent us a picture of the party theme which was green and pink polka dots with a cute monkey face so we went with a topsy turvy cake in 3 layers and covered it all in white fondant (Satin Ice Buttercream) and then put large pink polka dots on the bottom layer, medium green and pink polka dots on the middle layer and little green polka dots on the top layer and then Courtney cut out a darling little monkey out of fondant with a cute little flower in her hair for the top and she fashioned a 2 out of pink fondant and gum paste and then dusted it with glitter powder to give it a shimmer.  We then rolled balls out of fondant in white, green and pink to line each layer which I think looks just darling!  The cake is a yummy chocolate (using the White Almond Sour Cream cake recipe) and the frosting is my favorite vanilla buttercream.  I just love this cake!  🙂  Happy Birthday Yocelynn!
