Baby Shower Cake (Gluten Free) - Monkey Design!

I recently made this cake to match the bedding below for a friend's babyshower.  She is having a little boy!  Isn't the bedding adorable?  

Silly me, I forgot to take a picture of the cake, but I'm so glad she sent me this one!  I made the cake Gluten Free using white rice flour.  It was perfect!  I used Tish Boyle's The Cake Book's recipe for Golden Cake and just altered the flour to rice flour and added a little Guar Gum to help with the consistency.  
I used BillyVanillie Buttercream, and I made the monkey with fondant.  I even learned how to pipe my words with a new technique!  

Welcome Baby Avery!!
