This year my daughter turned 11, time has flown!
On her birthday she decided to take Cookie Monster Cupcakes to school for her classmates. I thought maybe they were all getting a bit old for Cookie Monster but it turns out I was wrong! They were a great hit 🙂
This is a very quick way to decorate cupcakes.
- ice with a mound of frosting
- roll in blue-tinted coconut
- add eyes made from white chocolate melts and dark choc chips
- and finally pop 1/2 a choc chip cookie in his mouth (easiest if you cut a small slit first)
For her “home” cake she requested Harry Potter’s Monster Book of Monsters. Seems we have a monster theme going on here, only at opposite ends of the spectrum!
This was simply a rectangle mud cake covered with dark chocolate buttercream fur. I used the large Wilton grass tip. Add some eyes made of fondant, a red fondant tongue and gums, some nostrils and teeth, and yellow script and it was all done 🙂 I didn’t take a photo of the cake itself but here’s one with the birthday girl just after the candles were taken out.
