Chunky Monkey Birthday Cake


We love seeing our designs in action, and seeing a Chunky Monkey inspired birthday cake was a blast! We recently worked with a client to craft an invitation for her little girl’s first birthday. We based the design on our Chunky Monkey letterpress birth announcement, a design featuring cute and colorful illustrations perfect for a playful first birthday!

The client loved the Chunky Monkey design so much that she sent a picture of it to local cake maker Jean Schapowal to see if she could bring the invitation design to life in the form of a cake!  You can see from the picture that this woman didn’t miss a beat.  She did an amazing job.  Not only was the cake absolutely beautiful but it tasted delicious.  The little added touch was to use a banana pudding filling.  Their little monkey just loved it!
