Hand Hand Fingers Thumb (Monkey and Drum Cake)

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.

 I love his little banana! And his belly button.

The cake says "Dum Ditty Dum our Monkey is 1"


I was inspired by this cake, here. And these fondant toppers, here.


  1. It was PERFECT. Thanks again for sharing your gift with us. It made the day extra special.

  2. It turned out great! Love the saying on the cake :)

  3. Mel, the cake link does not work.

  4. I fixed it. Though it was the exact same thing, so i don't know what was wrong...

  5. Um.... That looks amazing....

  6. Um.... That looks amazing....

  7. SUPER cute! I'm envious of your sculpting skills!


The fact that you take the time to leave me comments makes my day! Thanks for taking the time. I read every single one.
