After stacking and crumb coating the cakes I rolled out my yellow fondant and covered the bottom tier. Then rolled out the red fondant pretty thin and cut out the strips and attached them using a damp paper towel to make the fondant tacky.
Next I stacked the cakes. For this cake I chose to secure the layers together, using two dowel rods, because it was going to be traveling several miles to the party.
A couple pretzel rods with fondant leaves, blue letters and some banana runts and all I needed was the monkey!
This cake was a little of a pickle because of the extreme humidity and the dark fondant...but I made it through and the cake turned out adorable! Happy 2nd birthday Kippers!
