My daughter LOVES Sesame Street. We even went to Sesame Place in PA this summer. For her 2nd birthday, I knew what the theme would be!
I am not super crafty, so out of all of the characters, I thought Cookie would be the easiest because he is one color. I purchased blue food coloring and vanilla white frosting. I added a whole bottle of food coloring drops to the frosting to make it blue. I used Oreo cookies and took out the cream filling and crumbled them up.
After I baked the 2, 9" round cakes, I frosted the cake. With a toothpick, I drew out where I wanted Cookie's eyes and mouth. I put the crumbled Oreo's as his mouth. Then, I took 2 more Oreos and split them. I peeled off the cream to make the whites of his eyes. Then, with the rest of the cookies, I created small circles as his eye balls.
Last, but not least, I put a couple of chocolate chip cookies in his mouth! My daughter loved it, as did everyone at the party! It was a big hit, and I was proud of myself!
I made this Cookie Monster cake for our two year old son. A friend of mind suggested using the head/hands sets sold during Halloween for pumpkins as a way to create a Cookie Monster inspired cake. I own a Betty Crocker bake and fill set which is used for making ice cream cakes. I chose the dome pan to make this cake. It is helpful to have a "frozen" base in which to stick the head and hands.
I used a chocolate cake mix and made my own buttercream frosting. The frosting took an entire (small) bottle of blue food coloring which I piped onto the cake. This step would be fairly difficult without a pastry bag. I tried not be "perfect" as I really wanted to create the look of fur. The inside of the cake is cookies and cream, of course, and I purchased a small bag of Chips Ahoy cookies to go around the base.
The head/hands set can be found easily on line by Googling "cookie monster pumpkin push in". The ones that I have seen are less than $10.
I used a round 9 inch chocolate cake filled with a cookies and cream filling. I used black gel coloring to color the frosting for the mouth and piped it on before piping the fur. After the mouth looked how I wanted, I used a leaf tip and blue frosting and piped away! It took a little time but I loved how it turned out.
I tried to not make them all the same and used a toothpick to make the "fur" look scraggly. I made edible eyes out of cream cheese and Oreos covered in white chocolate. Then used some black frosting for the pupil.
This Cookie Monster Cake and Cupcakes were a huge hit! The cupcakes I made in the same way except the eyes are white chocolate chips that are placed upside down with a dot of black frosting for the pupil.
My latest cake is of Cookie Monster, done for a 1 year old named Samuel. The main part of the cake is homemade chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream frosting and covered in vanilla fondant (I use Satin-Ice fondant).
Cookie Monster is made of chocolate cake (the middle) and his head, arms and legs are rice krispie treats. The chocolate chip cookies are also from scratch (not Toll house recipe, but my own). I used a grass tip to get the look of fur on Cookie and used fondant balls for the eyes. I had to use quite a bit of blue food coloring to get the right blue. But for primary colors like these, I usually make the frosting ahead of time, as the color will get deeper with time.
