Coolest Cookie Monster Cake 15

by Sarah

I made this Cookie Monster cake for my son's 1st birthday party. He loves Cookie Monster! The base is a 2 layer 16 in round iced in buttercream with royal icing cookies that I made a week in advance.

The Cookie Monster is comprised of (from the bottom) 9in round, 10in, 9in, 6 in round for the neck and the head is the Wilton sports ball pan. I trimmed the head and body to shape and the arms are cut from loaf pans.

Cookie's eyes are large marshmallows. Cookie is iced in buttercream with the Wilton hair/grass tip. This effect took a long time but was well worth it. I used dowel rods in the round base and a large one through Cookie. The cake was so heavy, that it did end up leaning a little bit.

The cake was a huge hit and I want to thank the others on this site for all the info on making a 3-D Cookie Monster.

I had to make this Cookie Monster cake for my nephew's son who was turning one. His favorite is Cookie Monster so I found a coloring page and free hand drew the image onto a piece of wax paper.

I used piping gel and transferred the image onto the cake. Piped the outline, filled in the mouth. Filled it in with tip 18 pull out stars, piped the message. I stuck smaller cookies all around the side of the cake for the border and one broken cookie near Cookie's mouth. I piped the outline of his hand over the cookie and sprinkled cookie crumbs around his mouth to make it looked like he was eating it.

The cake is a from scratch chocolate 9x13 inch. One layer cut horizontally and filled with chocolate cream filling. The cookies fit better on the sides that way because the cake was high enough.

Dylan loved it!

Homemade Cookie Monster Cake

I made this Cookie Monster cake for a second birthday party, it turned out really cute! I used the Wilton ball pan for his head, a smaller round cake for his neck and loaf pans for his arms (which I carved with a serrated knife to shape).

I used a LOT of royal blue and a little tiny bit of black, it took a LOT of blue to get it to the right color but keep adding, it'll get there! I used fondant balls for the eyes and Wilton pre-made black for the mouth and eye dots.

I used the grass tip for the "fur", pulling out, start in the back so you can get used to the tip and get the look you want, that way when you get to the front you have perfected your technique!

This cake was easy and fun, and it turned out really great!

Great Job!
by: Heidi

You scored with this cake! Wow fantastic job! I'm going to attempt it for my daughter's first birthday this month :)

I had a question though. What is "Wilton black"? You said you used that for the blacks of his eyes and mouth?

Also, do you have a way that you can make a very small recipe of fondant icing? I've never made it before, but don't want to whip up a massive batch just for the eyes...

Any help (before the 24th lol) would be greatly appreciated!

Again, yummy cake! :D

Wilton Black

Wilton Blk is the frosting in the tube that is premixed in colors. SO much easier than mixing black icing. Just put a tip and a coupler on it and you're good to go. I wanna know what you used for the perfectly rounded eyes.

cute job

This is a good likeness of cookie a trick I use for coloring black frosting start with chocolate frosting add your black color its wonderful and tastes good too....

I used the Wilton 3D cuddly bear cake pan for this Cookie Monster cake. I used the extra batter to create the large chocolate chip "cookie" he is sitting on.

Once cool, I cut off the cuddly bears face to create a flatter surface for Cookie monster's mouth. I also cut off the ears, relocated them to the top and turned them over so that the bulging rounded side faced forward.

I used old fashioned icing with royal blue coloring and a number 108 tip to create the fur. For the cookie that Cookie Monster is holding, I raided my son's plastic food storage and added black chocolate chips.

The large cookie underneath, is iced with a little brown icing coloring and Rolos as chocolate chips.

My son Chase, loved Cookie Monster so I made him this Homemade Cookie Monster Cake for his 2nd birthday party.

Using (4) boxes of yellow box cake mix, I poured 2/3 into a large 16 inch round pan (face), and 1/3 into two halves of a sports ball pan (for the eyes).

When done, I cut out about an inch deep into the cake to make the mouth in 3-D. Decorated it with white and blue tinted frosting, and used writing gel in black for the eyes and mouth for ultra shine. Surrounded it with (5) dozen big fresh chocolate chip cookies. It was a hit!

Cookie Monster Cake

I made this Cookie Monster cake for my son's 2nd birthday and it was the talk of the party. I got the idea from this website and just made a few changes. Very easy to make.

Just use a 9x13 and 9 round cake pans to make it, used cake that I cut off the top to form the arms and decorated it. I waited til 30 mins before the party started to put the cookies on it that way they didn't go stale. I used the chewy cookies they bend easier and are much more workable than regular cookies.

Hope this helps.
