Recently, Kelly over at Buzzville threw the most awesome monkey birthday party for her sweet little girl. She had monkey themed games. monkey themed treat bags, and even monkey themed food! Including, monkey cupcakes that were so wonderful that I had to make some too.
This is the version I made for Buddy to take to school today. I used Vanilla Wafer Cookies for the mouth, mini MnM's for the eyes, and mini Nutter Butter cookies cut in half for the ears. For the nose I used a toothpick to poke two holes into the Vanilla Wafer cookie and then stuck a chocolate sprinkle in each hole.
I only wish I didn't take forever when I do things like this, but they always seems so simple and quick conceptually. When Mr. T saw what I was up to he said, "Oh, you're doing a crazy project" which means, "Oh, you're going to be up all night aren't you?" Not wanting to disappoint, my head finally hit my pillow at about 2:00 AM. Sigh...
Thanks Kelly for the brilliant idea! Buddy loved it.
