Cookie Monster Cupcakes

I mean who doesn’t love Cookie Monster?! My kids are obsessed with Sesame Street and these Cookie Monster cupcakes were a cute addition to my son’s 2nd birthday party! Just grab your favorite boxed cake mix, a can of vanilla icing, blue food coloring, Oreo cookies and some candy eyeballs – and you too will be able to whip up everyone’s favorite blue monster!

Ingredients
Chocolate boxed cake mix
Vanilla icing
Blue Food Coloring
Oreo Cookies
Piping bag and No. 233 Multi-Opening Decorating Tip 
Cupcake liners
Large Candy Eyes

Follow the instructions on the back of your cake mix box to make the batter.

** Tip: If you have a Pancake Batter Dispenser – use it to fill the the cupcake liners with the cake batter. It’s quick and there is no mess!

Bake cupcakes according to the box. While the cupcakes cool – mix vanilla icing and blue food coloring using a mixer. I feel a mixer really incorporates the color evenly. Fill a piping bag with the blue icing using a No. 233 Multi-Opening Decorating Tip.

Next, open an Oreo cookie in half, then cut each half in half again. You will have 4 semi-circles aka Cookie Monster mouths.

Apply the icing in short strokes to create Cookie Monster’s fur.

Top “fur” with 2 large candy eyes and 1 semi-circle Oreo cookie.

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! Cookie!
