I found a picture of cookie monster cupcakes online a few months back and saved it immediately! I knew the idea would be perfect for my sweet nephew Jake at his 2nd birthday party. He loves his "Cookie"...(that's what he calls his little cookie monster stuffed animal that he sleeps with :)
These are chocolate chip cupcakes with buttercream frosting. I used the piping tip # 233 (usually used to create "grass") and piped cookie monster's fur onto the cupcake. Then I used vanilla candy melts for the eyes, piping a little milk chocolate onto them for the center. And finally, I just crammed in a little cookie where his mouth goes!
And here's a candid shot of the birthday boy at his party! He was so excited to finally see his "blue cake" that he kept asking for. When I held him up to see them on the table he yelled, "COOKIE!" haha :) I love you so much Jake, Happy 2nd Birthday! love Aunt Ashy
I've created this blog as a place to share what I love: baking, painting, drawing, photography, graphic design, cooking, entertaining (parties & such)... Ok, so just about anything that allows me to be creative is on the list! It's a little mix of what I do & also an inspirational notebook for some of the beautiful things I find along the way.
