December 15th is officially National Cupcake Day. Yes, there are other cupcake days, but they are centered around certain flavors:
National Chocolate Cupcake Day on Oct 18
National Vanilla Cupcake Day on Nov 10
In this spirit, I also want to share my favorite Monkey Face Cupcakes. I’ve had a blast making these with my kids, and they had a great time eating and playing with the fondant as if it was Playdoh.
Any cupcake cake or icing would be fine as the fun part really lies within making the monkey faces toppers; hoever, if I were making this to impress, I would match it with this Banana Bread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.
For the topper itself, Aine explains the process:
Another option would be to not make an entire head, but just the face. The face can then be applied on top of the cupcake and icing similar to these cupcake below from prettysweet boutique.
