I used one gluten free Betty Crocker cookie mix and one Betty Crocker vanilla frosting for this Gluten Free Cookie Monster Cookie Cake. I added blue food color to make the blue Cookie Monster face. It took an entire small tube of blue food color to get this depth of blue, if you want darker make sure to buy extra food color.
I used Betty Crocker cream cheese frosting for the cookie monster's eyes. I used a cookie scoop to get the eyes round and added the black google eyes with a cake mate tube of black and then placed them in the freezer to get cold enough to place on the cake to keep it's shape. I then used the rest of the cake mate tube of black frosting and made the Cookie Monster mouth. I used my son's books of Cookie Monster as a guide.
The entire cake only cost about $8 to make using some coupons, that's very inexpensive for a cake not to mention a gluten free cake that serves 20 or 10-15 hungry people. I am not a very crafty person and this was an easy cake to make total time took about 45 minutes including time for the cookie to cool before decorating.
This was for my son's 1st birthday, he is a big Cookie Monster fan and he loved his first Birthday cake.

I wanted to make a homemade Cookie Monster cake for my son on his first birthday because he loves cookies just as much as Cookie Monster. I started with two 9-in round cakes. I placed them on top of each other with frosting in between, then I did a crumb coat over the cakes. A crumb coat is a thin layer of frosting on the cakes to make it easier to decorate without getting crumbs into your frosting.
Next, I used food coloring to dye white frosting blue and black. I used the blue to frost the cakes and used the black to make his mouth. I placed two ping pong balls on the cake for eyes and frosted them. As my final touches, I stuffed chocolate chip cookies in his mouth and around the plate.
Purchased the cookie monster cake pan with instructions on Ebay. Filled the pan with home made cream cheese pound cake (recipe can be found on AllRecipes.com). Made butter cream icing from scratch/recipe came with the pan instructions.
Let the cake cool and made most of the icing blue and rest stayed white. Used a grass tip to make the icing look like fur. Used a flower tip for his hat and a round tip for his eyes and mouth. Used chocolate icing for his mouth and parts of his hat. Used nestle toll house chocolate chips for his eyes.
Finally baked a medium heap of chocolate chip cookie dough mix for the cookie he held!
I made this Cookie Monster Cake out of the Wilton soccer ball pan. I then outlined Cookie Monster's mouth. I piped his fur on with a large star tip and pulled upward so it gave it the fur effect. I placed a cookie in his mouth then piped over it to make his hand. After finishing I crumbled another cookie around his mouth and arm to make it look like he had just eaten it.
