There are some people who can take a deck of cards, a few cups or a box and a saw and turn it into ‘magic right before your eyes.’ And then there are people who create magic with absolutely no illusion.
People like Deanna Palmer.
Deanna and her husband Kevin own and operate Two Little Monkeys Bakery right here in Burbank, based on her deep passion for making specialty cakes. And her passion shows, with a tremendous side of talent.
Two Little Monkeys specializes in custom cakes and this week I planned a VERY last minute surprise party for my 8 year old….and I needed a cake! I didn’t need just any cake, but a cake that had something to do with hamsters!
And here it is…. I felt like the most lucky person in all of Los Angeles at that moment.
I briefly spoke with Deanna about what I was looking for and she was on it. She created a custom hamster cake for my birthday girl, complete with brilliantly hand-crafted fondant hamsters. To say my daughter was excited, is an understatement.
No detail was excluded in this perfectly pink hamster house…down to the chubby cheeks of two very adorable and fully satisfied pets. They were even holding a perfectly sculpted red rose and bright red cherry. Check out the intricate details down to the hair on the tops of their ears! These are quite literally, pieces of art.
Then, as hard as it was to cut into this stunning cake, there were no regrets. Deanna had several layers of perfectly moist chocolate cake, filled with a layer of chocolate mousse AND a superior chocolate ganache. The word I heard most from the adults at my child’s birthday party was, ‘Wow!’.
The homemade buttercream on the outside was wrapped in a perfect fondant. I, for one, love to try the fondant…they are not all equal. This was delicious. I seriously cannot say more than delicious. Okay, except maybe, perfect.
What’s more, this husband and wife team truly made me happy. I have a complete sense of how proud and encouraging Kevin is of his wife, based on my few interactions with them. Her talent shines bright in his eye and she’s one talented woman.
I wouldn’t hesitate in a second to get another event cake or cupcakes from Two Little Monkey’s…and I don’t think you should either!!
