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!

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!
