Considering that the favorite monkey’s food is banana, that’s one of the reasons I’d love to add the mashed banana to my cake batter. This ingredient is going to give a strong and rich flavor into the cake batter that we make. A good example is this banana cake, which has the soft sweetness of mashed bananas with nice and delicious texture. While quite tasty on its own, I love to decorate the cake with chocolate milk all over the top of the cake. But if you don’t have the monkey-cake-pan, you can just use the round pan and form the cake into the monkey form and you can decorate the cake using fondant or icing and customize it to whatever decorate you want.

And the most important thing of making the food is that always remember to keep the hygiene, so before making the cake make sure that you washed the banana and all the ingredients including the stuff you used.
