The inspiration of these adorable cupcakes came from nothing but several google images. My sister called me one day trying to plan her precious child’s birthday. She wanted sesame street themed cupcakes so we quickly agreed on cookie monster! I did use a few tricks that helped with both the timing and look of them. Read on for pointers to help make these delicious coooookie monster cupcakes in your own kitchen 🙂
I started with (so embarrassed to say)a box of yellow cake mix, eek! The purist in me completely frowns upon this but it really does cut the time in half! It tastes just as good too. After baking, I used a pairing knife to cut a “v” shape to hold the cookie.
Then, I used a wilton #233 piping tip to pipe the delicious blue colored cream cheese icing.
For the eyes, I used white chocolate disks. Then, I colored a bit of the icing black and piped on the eyes. My sister made the adorable visors for party favors, such a great idea!
The birthday girl 🙂
