I cannot believe that the time has flown by so quickly and it was a year ago that I met the two most delicious little girls in the world .... Olivia & Elan! I am lucky enough to share my birthday with them, so the time had come to have a party!
Tina decided on a monkey themed party for the girls because they are her cheeky little monkeys. She had some super cute invitations made up from Vistaprint and from there I imagined what I could create for them.
This is the first time that I would have to set up a dessert table off site and it was a little unnerving. Tina used her bar area for the display and it was an L-shaped area and worked really well I thought.
As usual, everything turned crazy before the event and without countless other orders on, I needed to get my act together and do something. I knew I wanted to do something with the hessian I used for Noah's party and keep the colour theme to the neutral, pinks and yellow (for bananas)! That was where the thinking stalled and for a long time! ....... I think I started getting my act together last Thursday (3 days before). I then decided what treats to make and also what cake.
I wanted to make this a special day for them to remember as well as for Tina and Peter to look back on in photos.
Come into the jungle and see for yourself!

The bottom tier is white chocolate raspberry mud cake with white chocolate ganache. The top tier is chocolate sponge cake with dark chocolate ganache. All other elements are completely handmade and edible.
