Elmo and Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I just wanted a little break from the computer for the last few weeks. I haven't even looked at other blogs and hardly checked my emails. Well I'm back with a fun post! My little Addie turned two yesterday! I can't believe how fast the time has flown, she has turned into such a fun little toddler.

For her birthday party yesterday I wanted to make Elmo cupcakes, she LOVES Elmo so I knew she would love these. They were really easy to make and turned out really cute.

First you get a cupcake.

Then you frost the top of the cupcake with red. I used the "grass" tip to make the fur.


Then you add the eyes, I used white candy melts or you could use marshmallows or just pipe white frosting into circles.

 

Pipe on a orange nose.
 

Add black dots to the eyes.

 

And don't forget the mouth.

 

I also decided to do cookie monster so Elmo would have some friends. Just make him the same way only in blue.

 

Add eyes...

 

I ran out of black frosting for the mouths so most of them only got small lines, but I don't think Addie noticed.
