This was made from 2 9 x 13 cakes. I froze the cakes before carving. I used online pics of other cakes and free handed the shape on paper then placed on top of the two cakes to cut out his shape. I used the trimmings to make his hand. I did a crumb frosting in blue first. Then I used already made black frosting and drew and filled in the mouth. I used the #233 grass tip to make the fur with white icing I colored with royal blue die. The eyes are made out of rolled white fondant. I colored the fondant black to make the black circles for the eyes as well. Then I used two chocolate chip cookies on in the hand and one I broke then put in the mouth.This site was very helpful in helping me create my cake. I basically took many ideas like the fondant eyeballs and the raised 3D hand, using the grass tip for fur from here to make the final product I made.
This Cookie Monster Cake was a cake that my friend asked me to make for her daughter's 15th birthday. I knew exactly how I was going to make him. I did two nine inch rounds for the bottom of cookie monster (equivalent to 2 sheet cake servings). It was my special chocolate recipe. I used rice krispy treats for his head and stacked that on top of his bottom half with a lot of support. I covered all of him in buttercream, then a thin layer on fondant.
I piped his "fur" on and then gently pulled it with a tool to make it look more like fur. His eyes are made of fondant and his cookies are Chips Ahoy! Piped his arms on and he was heavy and huge. I was then told this was the best looking and best tasting cake they had ever had!
First, thank you for this website! It has been a tremendous tool and inspiration when designing cakes!
I started this Cookie Monster Cake with a 9x13 cake and trimmed off the slight dome. I added the picture by using one I found on-line and tracing it onto the cake. I first traced the outside of his entire body. Then, I cut out the eyes and traced those into the body. Then, I cut out where the hand would be and traced that.
I used a small circular fondant cutter to cut the cookie to make it look like he had eaten some. With the left over cake from the dome, I added frosting to it and shaped his hand over the cookie to give it a 3-D look. I piped his body with a tip #233 (Wilton's grass tip) with buttercream. His eyes are made from fondant.
The cake batter is Dunkin Hines French Vanilla and I added mini chocolate chips to the batter (notice the smile). I used two round 9 inch cake pans. I used one round cake for the face and then cut two side slivers off the other circle for the "football" shaped head. I made two cupcakes for the eyes. Everything is held into place with blue icing. Black pre-mixed icing was used for the pupils on the eyes and the smile line of the mouth. White frosting was smoothed over for the whites of the eyes. I used two 12 oz cans of white frosting and added 72 drops of blue food coloring for the fur. I used a star attachment for the fur piping. For an added element, I made 40 mini chocolate chip cookies to place around the cake.
