I made this 3D Cookie Monster Birthday Cake for my son's 2nd birthday. I did a double layer white 14 inch round cake for the bottom tier filled with strawberries and covered in buttercream frosting tinted brown to give the look of a chocolate chip cookie. I then decorated with dark brown buttercream chocolate morsels.
For the top layer I used the 3D bear pan from Wilton to make Cookie Monster. I used chocolate cake mixed with pound cake to make it sturdy. I cut off the ears and placed them near the hands area, securing with icing, to hold the real chocolate chip cookie. I used white fondant for the eyeballs and black buttercream for the pupils. I used the star tip to decorate Cookie Monster in blue. I used black buttercream frosting to draw his mouth.
Next I placed chocolate chip cookies around Cookie Monster. It was a great hit at the party!

These Cookie Monster Cupcakes are chocolate, and each cupcake has a half Oreo cookie (cream side up) hiding at the bottom of the cupcake liner as an added surprise! Once they cooled, I then filled the cupcakes with a whipped cream and cookie crumb mixture using a piping bag.
I frosted the cupcakes with blue buttercream, and then dipped the tops in sparkling blue sugar. The mouths are made from Oreo cookies cut in half with a sharp knife and then inserted into the cupcake. I cut a slit with a sharp knife to facilitate this process, which was probably the most tricky part of the construction.
Cookie Monster's eyes were made from vanilla melt wafers with carefully pressed on dried blueberries. Everybody loved these. They are very labor intensive, but I was pleased with the end result!
I started this Cookie Monster Eats his Cookie Cupcake with your Basic Cupcake.
I decided to add coconut to the icing to give him that "fur" look. Marshmallows cut in half for the eyes, basic black frosting for the center. Chips Ahoy Choc. Chip Cookies were the perfect size for his mouth.
These were very simple and a HUGE hit at my nephew's 2nd birthday party. It was the beginning of my adventure in the art of cupcake decorating.

This Cooke Monster cake was done using the Wilton 3D teddy bear pan (I followed the recommendation for using one pound cake mix and one yellow cake mix). I cut off the ears and used them as the "arms" and made the mouth and eyes from fondant (secured with lollipop sticks).
I also glued the cookies together with icing so they wouldn't move (I used Chunky Chips Ahoy). The fur was made using the Wilton "grass" tip.
