I made the monkey out of fondant, and must thank Lorraine for her YouTube video about making monkey cupcake toppers. Without her tutorial I wouldn't have been able to figure out how to make the face on this cute guy. I used Runts candy for the bananas instead of making them out of fondant, though I did wonder about my decision as I opened bag after bag of candy only to find 2-4 bananas in each one (what is that about?). Now I have a large bag of the other Runts candy in my pantry, left-over from the 10 bags I opened to get the bananas. Lucky for me, my kids like Runts and I don't ;)
I used a toothpick to make the cute monkey toes.
