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
Blue Food Coloring
Piping bag and No. 233 Multi-Opening Decorating Tip
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!
