Paul Frank Birthday Cake

It was a lot of fun to make this cake, partly I think because of the story that goes with it.

It is of course the Paul Frank monkey logo & apparently the birthday girl just loves Paul Frank & always has. The cake was commissioned by her sister & although the birthday girl knew she was getting a cake from me she didn't know what it was.

I was told that she was hoping for a Paul Frank related cake & her sister said that she needed to throw her off the trail a bit.  So with my help by making comments about the upcoming cake I was making on my facebook page (I was told she was stalking it for clues, lol) we managed to convince her that she would be receiving a cake covered in flowers & butterflies, which was apparently defiantly not her style at all.

Sorry for teasing you Lydia but at least you got a surprise & the cake you actually wanted in the end! 

The flavour was a 'Killer Chocolate' cake (milk chocolate sponge) with rich chocolate ganache for the filling in-between the 3 layers, followed by a coating in chocolate ganache & finally covered in a layer super yummy homemade chocolate marshmallow fondant.  All other featuring & decorations on the cake were fondant too.

It started out life as a 12" square cake which I carved into the correct shape so as with all carved/sculpted cakes the serves are a guess rather than an exact science but I believe it would of been around 40-45 serves.

As the designed was fairly plain I added a funky pattern to the cake board for some extra interest & I also gave it just a tiny little feminine touch by adding a bow to the monkeys head. 

I received a really lovely thank you email for the order which you can see on my testimonials page


  1. I love this cake - it's fabulous!!

  2. OMG!! I LOVE this cake! Paul Frank is my fave!!! Can you make one for me too?

  3. Thanks guys, I was really happy with it for a fairly simple design.

  4. It was an amazing cake. It completely made my night, you did such a great job of making it. When mum and Tegan first asked what cake I wanted I showed them a picture of a Paul Frank cake but I never thought I could have something as amazing as that. Not only did it look amazing but the taste was completely beautiful. Everyone there was so surprised at how moist the cake was and how beautiful the icing tasted. Thank you again for the cake. It was perfect.

  5. Hi! I was wondering if you could let me know how much you would charge for this exact cake in this same size?

  6. Sure Jessica just send me an email, please include what date you would need it for as well as if you will pick up the cake or would like delivery, thank you.
