Cookie Monster Cupcakes!

25 Mar

So every year for my boyfriend’s birthday I try to make him a fun cake or dessert. Even though he’s in his 20s, he really is a kid at heart, so his birthday treat has to be reflective of that. So last year I decided to make him Cookie Monster cupcakes! Yepp, Cookie Monster- as in the Sesame Street character.

When I came across these cupcakes on Pinterest, I thought to myself, “this could either go really well, or end up being a disaster.” I looked through several different versions of Cookie Monster cupcakes and overall the execution and idea seemed pretty quick and easy.  So I was determined to make them a success.

How-To

All you have to do is bake the cupcakes (I chose chocolate), cut a whole for the cookie to fit into, and then decorate. I made the blue icing from white icing with food dye, and put it in a makeshift piping bag- just a simple zip-lock bag and cut the very tip of the corner off. Be sure to put the cookie in the mouth before you ice the cupcake so you can ice and holes around the cookie. The eyes are just made from white chocolate melting candies, and the black is food gel pen I got in the baking section of my local grocery story.

Enjoy- Me Love Cookies!
