I’m cooking something new every day.
This means more people are happy.
Spreading the joy with food 🙂
My baby cousin who is visiting, just had his 9th birthday.
I made him a cake.
When I showed him the cake and asked him what it was, he said, “It’s me!”.
This is what the cake looked like.
Obviously he thinks he is a monkey.
And he may be right.
I used my basic Fudgy Chocolate Cake recipe. (Just made a lot more icing!)
Then I cut off a bit from each side to make room for the ears.
The “ears” were Oreos covered in chocolate icing.
Actually the whole cake was covered in chocolate icing!
I gave the monkey a big yellow icing mouth, a scarily wide pink icing smile, raisin nostrils, and eyes made of holey chew sweets.
Cheers to family and food! They are the best things in life, won’t you say? 🙂
