These are the adorable, if I do say so myself, Monkey Cupcakes I made for Little J’s 1st Birthday! I also made a cake just for the birthday boy! I found an amazing cookbook The Whimsical Bakehouse.http://www.whimsicalbakehouse.com/ They have great ideas. I made a Banana Pound Cake with chocolate frosting. Here goes:
1 box Pound Cake Mix
1/3 c milk
1 banana, mashed
For the chocolate frosting I melt about 1/2 bag of chocolate chips with a bit of whipping cream and vanilla extract then slowly add powered sugar until I get it just right. Depending on the day it is a little different every time!
