This cake was at first a challenge due to the sock monkey I'd never made before. My first attempt failed only because my sock monkey looked like it had been lifting weights! It DID NOT like sitting on top of my cake so..it decided to CRASH AND BURN! But...it was actually a blessing in disguise because my second attempt was SO much better than the first and now...won't scare the 1 year old it's going to :-).
Top cake: Fresh Strawberry with MM buttercream, covered with modeling chocolate. Bottom layer: Dark Chocolate cake filled with a dark chocolate ganache covered with MM buttercream.
