Check out these Cookie Monster and Elmo cupcakes I made for a 2 year old’s birthday party!
I started with the Elmo cupcakes… I took butter cream frosting and colored it red and then put a thin layer of frosting over the cupcake. The mouths are made of Oreo cookies but you can use a different chocolate cookie. I cut them in half… they don’t break in half easily so I had to use a sharp knife to get the right cut by shaving it down. I then used a small dab of frosting to attach to the cupcake.
I used a Wilton tip #233 to create the fur look of Elmo on the cupcake. The eyes? Mini marshmallows with a dab of black butter cream. The nose? An orange jelly bean.
Next up was Cookie Monster! I colored butter cream frosting blue and used the same Wilton tip #233 to create the blue fur look. The eyes are mini marshmallows with a dab of black colored butter cream. Then I used a mini chocolate chip cookie and put it into the cupcake, like he’s eating it!
