elmo and cookie monster cupcakes

I think we first saw these Elmo cupcakes on Hostess with the Mostess last year, and Stacy has made them a couple of times since. We used large marshmallows for the eyes, a gumdrop for the nose, and a small frosting tip to create the fur and eyeballs. Cookie Monster's mouth is half an Oreo cookie. Easy-peasy! Aren't they completely adorable? They're sure to be a hit on the toddler scene!


They were so cute we decided to plan a party so we'd have a reason to make them. Since there were no birthdays in sight, we planned an "Un-Birthday Party" and got all the kids together for games (like pin the , prizes, and treats. So much fun!

These are so cute!!! I made a different version of the Cookie Monster cupcakes for my daughter's first birthday earlier in the year and they were a huge hit. (Even the adults loved them!)

Cupcakes are such winners in my book--but COOKIE MONSTER/ELMO cupcakes?
mm mm the cuteness is too much!

I don't like Elmo, but I think those cupcakes are adorable! The big eyes are great.

An un-birthday party sounds like fun!

First off, I just want to say that I love reading your blog. :) I actually made similar cupcakes to those for my son's 1st birthday in the summer of 2008, but I made 8 of the Sesame Street characters. Your post actually made me think about the cupcakes I made and I actually posted them on my blog post today if you would like to check them out. Thanks for your wonderful posts!

Oh my gosh. I am in love with those instantly. I'll need to do a few practice runs on them I think, just to make the frosting texture right. Thanks

how fun you posted this. As I was driving home last night I decided to do Elmo and Cookie Monster Cupcakes for my son's birthday instead of a big Elmo. I was debating about how to do the eyes and mouth last night. I had thought of doing fondant but this is perfect. I love it and I know my little birthday boy will too! Thanks for sharing.
