How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and bake in in preheated oven in an 8x11/2-inch round baking pan. Remove cake from pan and cool as directed on package. Invert cake onto serving plate.
  • In a small bowl, stir together white frosting and peanut butter. Use the mixture to frost the top center of the cake in the shape of a monkey face. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of the chocolate frosting in a plastic bag; set aside. Frost the rest of the cake with remaining chocolate frosting and pat the cereal into the chocolate frosting only. Snip one corner off the plastic bag and pipe a nose and a mouth onto face. Place two chocolate kisses upside down onto the face for eyes.
  • Cut sugar cookie in half and place the halves on each side of the cake for ears. Before serving, peel a banana and brush the peel with lemon juice to prevent browning. Place the peel on plate above the monkey head.

    I made this for my sons 3rd B Day this week. I made it 2 layers with banana pudding as the filling. Then used extra large cupcakes for the ears. Turned out GREAT! Thanks soooooo much for an easy kids cake!!!!!!!!!

    pintobean, I must confess, my kids are grown and I now have two tiny little grandbabies not big enough to eat cake yet and I make this all the time for ME, lol. There is a big child in all of us. Yummy! Go for it, make it, bake it, and enjoy those ears, lol. :-)

    Hi there, just delivered this cake to my grandson's class for his birthday. I had to add another cake to make a body for the cake because of the number of kids. What a hit it was. Thank's for making me look good!
