How to Make Miniature Cookie Monster Cupcakes

This is a step by step "how to" on  how I  made these adorable miniature Cookie Monster cupcakes for my daughter's second birthday. They were a hit and super easy to make!

This is what you will need:
  • Miniature cupcakes (Try and match the wrappers to the character.)
  • Vanilla Frosting
  • Miniature chocolate chip cookies
  • Miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 Decorating bags
  • 2 Couplers
  • Decorating Tip #233 & # 12
  • Blue gel food coloring
All supplies needed to make these Cookie Monster cupcakes can be purchased {HERE}

Before you begin frosting your cupcakes, first you have to make a cut out of his mouth, this is where the cookie will go when you are done frosting him. With a small knife cut out a semi circle, just a little bit bigger than the miniature chocolate chip cookie.

You can test if it is big enough, by putting the cookie in the opening, if it stays put, the opening is large enough. If it feels like it may fall out, cut a little bit more out until it's a snug fit.

You can either use store bought vanilla frosting or make your own vanilla butter cream frosting. Recipe to make your own can be found {HERE}.  Section your vanilla frosting into two separate bowls in order to tint the frosting. Add the blue coloring a little at a time, until you have reached the color of cookie monster's Fur. You can leave the last part plain white, since this will be used for his eyes.

Fill you decorating bags and get all your tips ready to decorate!  With tip #233 on the blue frosting, begin piping the frosting around the outer edge of the cupcake. Continue until all but the mouth is covered. You can add more frosting if you want to build up his fur in certain areas, or to give him more of a shape.

Now you are ready to add his eyes. With a #12 tip on your white frosting, pip two eyes right above his mouth. Add the miniature chocolate chips to each eye and you are finished! Easy enough right!

 And there you have it..now just join him with the rest of his buddies and you have created the hit of the party!
