I made this Cookie Monster Birthday Cake for my daughter's first birthday. I got the idea on how to make it from this site and put my own touch to it. To make this cake I baked two 8 inch round cakes, two 10 inch round cakes, two 1 small Pyrex bowl cakes - two bread loaf pan cakes. To assemble Cookie Monster I used the 8 inch round cakes on the bottom, two 10 inch rounds stacked on top then the second 8 inch round. Placed pieces of cake to build a neck. I cut the edges of the upper 10 inch cake to angle it toward the 8 inch cake making it a more gradual slope. I put two bowl cakes together with the largest ends meeting to make a sphere shape (Cookie Monster's head) and cut out a mouth shape in the bottom bowl cake. Secured layers of cake from top to bottom with wooden skewers.
Cut arms, hands and feet from the loaf pan cakes. I took each loaf pan cake and sliced it into half the thickness to give me four long rectangles to work with. Attach arms, hands and feet to body with toothpicks. Place cookie between hands and secure with toothpicks. I used marshmallows for the eyes and Oreo cookies for the eye ball and the mouth, used icing to glue the oreo to marshmallows. I colored my icing with blue food coloring for the body and head and covered it with blue glass candy sprinkles for texture.
My boyfriend who is 31 this year is a massive cookie monster fan (you are never too old!) so I decided to make him a Homemade Cookie Monster Birthday Cake after seeing all the other cool cookie monster cakes out there.
I started by using Betty Crocker's Super Moist Butter Cake mix. I figured I would rather use a cake mix to save time so I’d more time to decorate. Being my first proper cake, I had no idea how much time it would take.
I bought a Wilton 3D Mini Stand Up Teddy Bear pan from eBay and followed the instructions. I think I might have overfilled it as there was a lot of mess afterwards but luckily it soaked off the pan later.
I cut off the ears from the teddy bear cake once it had cooled and cut a mouth into the cake. I used butter icing coloured blue and covered the cake first in a thin layer before attempting to use the icing bag. First go at using an icing bag – didn’t go too well. I made a bit of a mess and it didn’t look as good as I thought it would in my head. I covered most of it and then “combed it out” using a fork. I then made two googly eyes from white and black regalice fondant and black for the inside of the mouth.
I thought I did ok for my first attempt!
