Curious George

Well, it took a few days longer than I wanted but I'm finally getting around to putting up what I's an adorable Curious George birthday cake for a cute little guy named Kiptyn Ladd! The bottom tier is butter pecan with vanilla buttercream and the top layer is french vanilla with vanilla buttercream.
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!
