August is Cotton-Top Tamarin Month at Disneyâ€™s Animal Kingdom, the cute wisp of a monkey weighing in at around one pound. And we may just gain a pound (or two) enjoying these adorable cupcakes created by Pastry Chef Andreas Born. View attachment 9101 Chef Andreas crafted a chocolate mold to cast both white and dark chocolate to create the cotton-top tamarin face. Dark chocolate shavings replicate the miniature monkeyâ€™s mane atop a generous dollop of butter cream. The cupcake is rich, dark chocolate. The delicious sweets are $3.99 at the Coffee Kiosk at the entrance to Discovery Island, just across from the Cotton-top display. Theyâ€™re also at Kusafiri Bakery and during August, at Rafikiâ€™s Planet Watch, where all the cotton-top tamarin activities are centered. In case youâ€™re wondering just why thereâ€™s a cotton-top tamarin month at Disneyâ€™s Animal Kindgom, Aug. 15 is a national holiday in Colombia, South America â€“ the â€œDay of the Cotton-Top Tamarinâ€ â€“ and Disney is doing its part to help save the endangered species.
