The One With the Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Who are you looking at?
Well, I'm not a big fan of the creepy and scary aspect of Halloween. In fact, to me, Halloween is just a big waste of time keeping us from celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas even longer! Well, I guess it's fun to dress babies up like bumblebees (more on that later)...

So instead of making anything scary, for the Halloween festivities this weekend I made some Cookie Monster cupcakes.

And they're pretty easy:
  1. Make chocolate cupcakes (or whatever kind you like best).
  2. In a ziplock bag, set aside two spoonfuls of plain white vanilla frosting.
  3. Use blue food coloring to dye the remaining vanilla frosting (heads up: it is going to require a lot of food coloring to get the frosting this color - I had to use almost an entire bottle of dye for one can of frosting).
  4. From a cake decorating set, use the grass tip to create the fur: start in the middle and work your way toward the edges in a circular pattern.
  5. Refrigerate the cupcakes for about half an hour to let the frosting stiffen. You don't have to do this, but it makes doing the eyes a little easier.
  6. Cut a tiny piece of the corner of your ziplock bag to make the eyes out of white frosting. You can use a toothpick to keep the edges clean.
  7. Put mini chocolate chips in then center of your white frosting for the pupils.
  8. Voila! Enjoy your cute cupcakes!

And of course, this post wouldn't be complete without some pictures of Addi enjoying the cupcakes!
