Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Pin It


Cookie Monster is famous in our house.  My kids love him.  I like him - but often feel like a cookie monster myself.  I saw similar Cookie Monster cupcakes on line that used blue colored coconut for his fur.  I knew I wanted to make him, but my kids will not eat coconut.  So I decided to make my own version.

I made chocolate cupcakes in pretty blue liners.  I chose vanilla buttercream to frost them with because everyone in my house loves that.  And when we all can agree there is peace - and I love that!

I colored my frosting with Wilton Sky Blue and Royal Blue Gel Food Coloring.  I just mixed until I got a color I thought matched Cookie.  We have a lot of examples for me to use.  I put the icing into a disposable decorating bag fitted with tip 233.  I love this tip and have used it before on my Dad's 75th Birthday Cake.  I just put frosting all over the cupcake to look like his fur.

I used Wilton white candy melts for his eyes and drew on his pupils with an edible food marker (I like Americolor.)  Then I put a mini Chips Ahoy in his mouth.  This cupcake was easy and the kids loved it, well Rachel did.
