Monkey love

February 9, 2012 at 2:02 am 2 comments

This is my first time baking a gluten free cake from a box mix by Trader’s Joe. I was apprehensive to bake and eat it but my tween cousin sister cannot tolerate wheat flour in her diet. My hubby and kids loved it. I took a sniff and there was no flour smell to it. I took a bite and it was good, but still not my cup of tea. I can still and lucky to be able to eat normal stuff, thanks god, no diet restriction due to age or even allergies.

I rush thru the process stacking 3 layers of 6 inches round. I covered it with duff red fondant! The duff fondant was so soft and droopy, so I gave up and assembled the monkey cake and called it a unhappy night.

      My little boy loves all things monkey, as he fell in love with Curious George. It was a Valentine’s Day cake for him.
