Last year for my son Micah's birthday, I made him Elmo cupcakes because he absolutely loved Elmo at the time. This year for his third birthday, I decided to make him Cookie Monster cupcakes, because he just loves to eat!!!
I made the same chocolate cupcakes as I did last year, and piped Cookie Monsters details with cream cheese frosting. I started by using a large round tip to pipe white frosting into two eyes...
And then a #3 tip with black frosting to pipe his crazy eyeballs.
Next I used the same #3 tip to pipe the mouth (and filled it in with the same tip).
And finally, I used a #18 star tip with blue frosting to pipe Cookie Monster's fur!
Isn't he cute?!
And of course, Cookie Monster wouldn't be complete without a cookie hanging out of his mouth! (I used mini chips ahoy, instead of baking my own, just to save time!)
