Curious George Cake Decorations and Ideas for a Baby Shower
The layout for a Curious George cake can be copied directly from pictures on the pages of your favorite storybook that you read over and over when you were a kid. Or maybe you just had the thought when you were assigned the role as hostess of a baby shower or birthday party that a monkey cake would be cute, and then you chose Curious George as the best monkey to use as an example.
I couldn't agree with you more because I can’t think of a better storybook character to use as a foundation for bright, colored designs for the fondant or to use as inspiration for decorating your birthday or baby shower cake. The fact that there’s plenty of Curious George merchandise like candleholders, cake toppers and cute stuff that will appeal to all ages is just an added bonus.
THE BEST COLORS FOR A CURIOUS GEORGE CAKE
To be certain that your Curious George baby shower theme and Curious George cake ideas don’t clash, order your party decorations and tableware before you tint the frosting or buy the sheets of fondant. The colors that you use to decorate your Curious George cake will be easy to change to match your tablecloths and party favors. Just to give you a general idea of what to expect; you can always count on Curious George items having bright, primary shades of red and yellow that really shine next to his natural, brown fur coat. The opportunity to use other primary colors comes with the decision of which story you choose to highlight.
If you want to add green to the mix, add some palm trees. For more Curious George baby shower cake ideas, look in the books to see how the kites and beach balls and other toys that he loved to play with were colored.
CUPCAKES, SHEET CAKES, LAYER CAKES OR WHAT?
If you are artistic or have a bakery that is, sheet cakes allow you to re-create an entire scene on the top of your Curious George baby shower or birthday cake. It also leaves plenty of room for a message or wording to be written across the top. Sheet cakes are the best choice for a large party or if you need a place to write some long wording.
Layer cakes are one of my favorites because of the colorful, creative ways you can use fondant cutouts and designs. If you have a large layer cake with a Curious George theme, there’s little need for a centerpiece, it will be the star of the party decorations. This Curious George cake is without a doubt, one of my favorites. Even a beginner can master a yellow foundation with red diamond shape cutouts on the sides with a Curious George figurine as a cake topper.
Maybe kids love cupcakes because they are small just like them. They will love them even more with a tiny monkey drawn on top in tasty frosting. A few jellybeans make lovely balloons for that extra special creative touch.
