I grew up reading Hand Hand Fingers Thumb. Did you?
Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb
Dum Ditty Dum Ditty
Dum Dum Dum...
If you've never read it, its basically a book about monkeys and drums.
Well it turns out a whole new generation is helping their kids to love it. One of my best friend's son was having his first birthday (hard to believe it was almost a year ago that I planned the Milk, Cookies and Bedtime Stories baby shower for them!). And since this is his favourite book she decided to use it as a theme.
I was honored to be asked to make the cake. I may have had a little TOO much fun sculpting monkeys and drums out of fondant.
The cake says "Dum Ditty Dum our Monkey is 1"
I was inspired by this cake, here. And these fondant toppers, here.
