Cookie Monster Cupcakes

These were a present for my friend who is in love with all these sesame street-cupake designs.

They were so cool i felt like a murderer eating the spare one i made for myself.

-four cupcakes (or muffins.)
-cream icing
-blue food colouring
-8 white chocolate buttons
-8 chocolate chips
-2 cookies. You can use chocolate chip, but i only had ginger snaps at that point.


1. You have to make sure that there are no overhanging bits on the cupcake/muffin. just cut any cul[rit batter off with a sharp knife.

2. Take your cream icing and drop some food colouring until you are satisfied with the colour. I wanted a lighter kind of blue. But if you want a true-blue (pun intended) cookie monster kind of blue, you will have to go a few shades darker.

3. spread the blue icing over the top of your four cupcakes/muffins. Use the flat part of you knife, or the back of a spoon, to make the frosting 'stand up'. You do this by touching the frosting with the kife/spoon and quickly lifting it off the cupcake so the icing stand up in spikes.

4. Put 2 white chocolate buttons as the eyes, and use some spare icing to 'glue' the chocolate chips on as pupils. You can put one pupil facing up and a nother facing the right direction to get the cokie-monster kookiness.

5. Use a knife to cut a mouth in the cupcake. Cut a ginger snap into two even halfs and put one half into his mouth.

Prefect for little kiddies parties, i must say.

i'll have to dig up the cream icing recipe and put it up here when i find it.
