For the monkey cupcakes, I used chocolate cake and chocolate icing. I used a Nilla wafer cut off at the top for the nose/mouth and mini Nutter Butter cookies for the ears. For the eyes, I turned white chocolate morsels upside down. Finally, I used a chocolate icing pen to draw the centers of the eyes, the nose and the mouth on the wafer.
The menu inclued pork barbeque, baked beans, corn on the cob, cole slaw, macaroni salad, among other things. To go along with the monkey theme, we had monkey bread, monkey cupcakes, monkey meat and banana pudding.
