Project 365: #111 Cookie Monster cupcakes

Well here they are - the cupcakes that I mentioned here!  My perfectionist tendencies came out a bit here since Ali, who I was making them for as a birthday present, does cake decorating classes!  To start with, I couldn't decide what cupcakes to make, but decided to go with Cookie Monster ones since they look great and she loves cookies - it seemed like the ideal combination!

They started off simply as vanilla cupcakes, then I had to make a huge batch of buttercream (as you can see above!), dye it blue (which took a whole bottle of food colouring!) and then mound it on top of the cupcakes to make the head.  After a hour in the fridge to set, I coated the buttercream in coconut (which I had dyed blue the night before), stuck on the eyes (white chocolate buttons with milk chocolate chips stuck on) and put a cookie in the mouth by slicing into the buttercream.  Needless to say, it took me a good 3-4 hours to make these, but I'm really pleased with how they turned out :)


  1. Aww their little eyes are so cute, would be a shame to eat them x

  2. These are AMAZING! I might make some Elmo ones in a similar way! (<3 Elmo!)


  3. Thanks guys! I didn't want to eat them either! Elmo ones would be the same, yeah - just use an orange jelly bean for his nose :) x
