I made this Cookie Monster Birthday Cake for my son's second birthday. He loves Sesame Street and Cookie Monster in particular. I used 2 round chocolate sheet cakes (very dense cakes) and stacked them with whipped cream in between. I printed out a picture of Cookie Monster and my husband used a toothpick to outline the shape on the cake. I then cut it out and used leftover cake to make the bulging eyes.
I decorated with buttercream icing in black, blue, and white. I made the mistake of not doing a crumb layer of icing first, so the "fur" icing didn't stick as easily as I would have liked, especially on the sides where gravity was working against me.
I used tip #233 to create the fur effect. The cookie in Cookie Monster's mouth is just a packaged chocolate chip cookie, and I used buttercream to stick the characters and the candle on the surrounding cookies.
For this Cookie Monster Birthday Cake I baked Betty Crocker cake mix in a Cookie Monster shaped cake pan and a sheet pan. I let both cakes cool.
Then, I decorated the sheet pan with green butter cream frosting. Then I flipped the Cookie Monster cake onto the sheet cake. I outlined Cookie Monster and filled in his mouth with black butter cream frosting and a small circle tip and then smoothed it out.
Then, I filled the Cookie with brown butter cream frosting and smoothed it out with a spatula. After, I used the star tip and filled in Cookie Monster's body and hat (I also made a pink border with the star tip). Then I filled in the whites of Cookie Monster's eyes and the pupils, and then added chocolate chips to the cookie, and wrote "Mmmmmmmmmm... Cookies!" with a small circle tip. I hope this cake looks as yummy as it tasted!
My son was so in love with Cookie Monster that we made him a Cookie Monster Birthday Cake for his birthday.
We started the cake by following the instructions on the cake box (whatever flavor you like). We used 2 boxes of cake mix. You will need 2 containers of white frosting and food coloring. Also some fresh baked cookies (flavor of your choice).
You will end up cutting your cakes that you baked into pieces that will fit together to be the shape of cookie monster. Mix your icings to make black, red, blue and leave some out for the eyes to be white.
Once it is iced with the colors necessary you will than put on his features. Add cookies to his hands and you have Cookie Monster.
I took the lead from cake #19 for this Cookie Monster Birthday Cake. The bottom of the cake is two 12" cakes, then I layered two 9" cakes on top, securing the cakes together with bamboo skewers.
Then Cookie's arms and neck were two mini loaf cakes (for the arms I cut the loaf longways). The head was created with the Wilton ball cake mold. Used grass tip for the fur, black fondant for the mouth and eyes and the white of the eyes are Styrofoam.
For decorating I had two friends over to help, which made it a lot easier.

I made this Cookie Monster Birthday Cake for my mum for her birthday. I really wanted to make a character birthday cake and she kindly let me make one for her birthday. I iced it in blue icing and stippled it a bit with a spatula to make it look like fur.
The eyes are large marshmallows with brown M&M's on top. I then broke the chocolate biscuits in half and then stuck them into the icing to make the mouth. I also put cookies around the outside for decoration.
