With birthday season beginning at my house, I’m taking a quick look back at previous years.

This is the Monkey Cake I made for Sweet Boy’s 1st Birthday.  You can find the instructions here from Martha Stewart.  It was very easy and makes use of your metal bowl for baking the cake – something I love doing to get the dome shape without having to buy another cake pan.  (I also did this for the Ladybug Cake.)

Let the birthdays begin!
