Whether you go for gourmet or box cupcake, these are really really simple to decorate.
Step 1: Cookie monster cupcake ingredients
One dozen cupcakes that have been baked and cooled.
One container vanilla frosting (mine was store bought, you could make this easily. I love this recipe for cream cheese frosting.
Blue food dye
One bag of shredded coconut
Chocolate chip cookies
- Start off by putting most of your vanilla frosting in a bowl. You'll want to reserve 1/4 of the frosting to make the whites of the eyes of your little monsters.
- Add several drops of blue food dye until your frosting becomes a nice consistent blue. This took me about 20 drops.
- Frost your cupcakes and get ready for the next step -- we're going to make them furry!
