A friend asked if I could make her Cookie Monster Cupcakes to help celebrate her birthday. I told her yes and then had to think about how I was going to make them. I thought I would share my attempt at Cookie Monster Cupcakes with everyone. They were a lot of fun to make and everyone really enjoyed them.
For the Cookie Monster Cupcakes I made a chocolate cupcake and let it completely cool. I used food coloring to make the cream cheese icing blue. It took a bit of food coloring to get to the color I wanted. Next time I will wear gloves while making the icing. The tips of my fingers were tinted bright blue after making the icing.
I cup marshmallows in half using powdered sugar coated scissors for the eyes. The powdered sugar helps with cutting the marshmallows. The scissors did not get super sticky while cutting the marshmallows.
The eye balls were made with a black icing pen. Originally I thought about using M&M’s or Reeses Pieces but they would not stay in place.
The mouth is made with a half of a chocolate chip cookie.
To go with the Cookie Monster Cupcakes I made Elmo Cupcakes which I will share tomorrow.
