Cookie Monster Cupcakes

These have been all over the internet, so it was no surprise to me that my 21 year-old daughter sent me a picture of them a couple of months ago.  She turned 22 this past week and I made them for her.  They were a big hit.

Like so many things, they look cuter in person!  They are very simple to make, though.

She likes marble cake, so I made marble cupcakes.  The eyes are Wilton Candy Melts with black icing.  Initially, I tried Wilton gel, which just ran after a bit and made Cookie Monster look pretty scary.  I wiped off all the gel and was more successful with the regular black icing that comes in a tube.  The learning process in the beginning is why the eyes are sorta wonky.  Of course, I didn't realize the gravitational problem with the gel stuff until I started placing the eyes into the cupcakes and realized they were weeping!  To make the cookies stay in/on his mouth/face, I cut a slit and stuck the little cookie into it.

Just something a little fun and different than my usual fiber/paper crafting.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
