The tigers are white cake with vanilla buttercream frosting, which we tinted orange. The eyes are chocolate chips and the ears are orange jelly beans cut in half. The nose, mouth and stripes are chocolate frosting.
For some reason, I didn't take a picture of the monkeys on their own. They are white cake with chocolate frosting. To make the light brown muzzle area, we mixed chocolate and vanilla frosting. The eyes are marshmallows cut in half. The ears are Junior Mints. The pupils, nose and mouth are piped on with chocolate frosting.
Fortunately, the weather was perfect the day of the party. Here we are in the enormous and awesome petting area at the Oakland Zoo.
Here are their goodie bags, all ready to go.
We played Animal Bingo. All the animals on the cards are at the Oakland Zoo.
