 I am designing, baking and prepping this week for my best friends son's first birthday! Mason is having a monkey party, so I thought I should share these adorable monkey cupcakes that I am going to bake for his party!!

Picture and recipe via Fun Stuff Cupcakes

Monkey A-Round Cupcakes
1 package Chocolate cake mix
Desired color food coloring
44 chocolate disks
Small black jelly beans or chocolate chips
Black string licorice

Preheat oven to 350 and mix all ingredients, bake for 21 to 23 minutes and let cool.

1. Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting

2. Pipe circle of yellow frosting in center of each chocolate for ears and for face. Use jelly beans for eyes, cut licorice for nose and mouth.

3. Use toothpick or knife to pull up frosting for hair.

Buttercream Frosting

1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon meringue powder
1 tablespoon milk
1 package powdered sugar

Beat butter, vanilla, and salt, next add meringue powder and milk. Gradually add powdered sugar, beat at high speed until frosting is light and fluffy! Next you can stir in food coloring until you get your desired colors.
