Hi Monken...as soon as I read about your new thread, I hopped on over!  I just love your work and this is very cool that you'll have your own spot to post the pics.  Thanks so much for sharing...

Oh my Monken. You never cease to amaze me! My son in involved in a guitar project at college. I will be sure he sees this one too. I hope you don't mind, but I have made a folder and have put all your cakes in there to peruse. I love you colorful decorating too.

Off topic, but you have had your share of bad weather too. I think I know the approximate area where you live. I have relatives that live in the same area. Stay safe, and hope it wasn't too bad for you last night.

Monken - every time I see your cakes, I get so hungry!   

Your cakes are too pretty to eat!      I wish I had your talent!

I find it so amazing what you do, I don't want you to give away your trade secrets, but how do you get  all the shapes and sizes for all your cakes? I'm guessing you make a big sheet cake and then cut the shapes, you better get paid very well for your cakes, because you sure deserve to.

How neat Monken!  I used to do some cake decorating til my hands started giving me fits.

Do you do this as a  hobby or do you sell them?

Fannie Mae, you have a folder!!! That is the nicest thing ever!! I'm gonna post some more soon, I have 2 books filled with pictures but alot of them aren't on my computer. 
We have had alot of bad weather it seems, Ms & Al have been raked this year! We drove home in a severe thunderstorm yesterday afternoon, I thought we were never gonna get home! It was raining so hard you couldn't see the road at all!! My Hubby was driving, well, he was stearing!  Anyways I have family near Trimm, so i always know what the weather is doing up there! Is that where you are? You probably already know but I'm in east-central Ms. I'm terrified of bad weather so The Weather Channel is a regular in our home!   
Now when I watch the weather I keep all my monkey friends in mind! Hope your son likes my cake, Hugs, Monken

AWWW! Thank you Sassy, I just got feedback on the guitar cake, I got 5 referrals & there wasn't a crumb left, so I guess they liked it!

    Really it's not hard, I just draw the shape on newsprint & then use that for my cutting guide. I have all different pan sizes so i can usually put something together the right size. See, you guessed right! And, no my hubby never thinks I charge enough for my cakes & I really don't but I'm so grateful to my customers & all!

My favorite is the butterfly cake, but your candyland cake comes in a close second!

I can barely put sprinkles on cupcakes straight let alone paint with frosting!

Monken,
Sorry I missed you on the Caylee thread. I am so glad to hear we are getting to see some more pics of you beautiful cakes. Also glad to see you here after the bad storms the past couple of days. I will check back from time to time. Sounds like you have your hands full right now.

Hey, hey! I know it's about time! Here's some more I've done recently. Gotta make my hubby a cake for graduation next week, too! Our neighbors are having a cook-out to celebrate his graduation & a birthday so it'll be half & half. We'll see how it turns out!
