To create these cupcakes you will need the following supplies:

Cake Mix (or make your own cake batter for your cupcakes)

Cupcake paper holders

Sweet chocolate chips

Mini vanilla wafters

regular vanilla wafters

Frosting (store bought or your own)

Red Food dye

Black food dye

Step 2: Bake your cupcakes

First you will need to bake your cupcakes.

Step 3: Frost the cupcakes!

Once your cupcakes are cooled you will need to frost the cupcakes.  Depending on the color of your monkey you may have to mix a color.  For a brown monkey chocolate frosting works wonders, if you want it darker, add a little bit of black food dye to the chocolate frosting.  Do not feel limited to natures color pallet!  You can easily make purple, blue, white, pink, orange, and the list can go on and on!

I used a small spatula to put on my frosting, use whatever you are comfortable with to get a nice even layer.

Step 4: Look at me monkey

Take a large vanilla wafer and put it on the bottom of the cup cake.  This is the monkeys mouth area. 

Take two mini vanilla wafers and place them out to either side letting the wafer hang off the monkeys head. 

Take two sweet chocolate chips and put them above the mouth area.  These are your eyes.  You do not have to use chocolate, you might want to use white chips, maybe skittles, or a different type of candy.  You could pipe on eyes as well as use fondant.  Using the chips makes it easy for little fingers to help you decorate.

These made me smile :) So cute!
