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.
