Cookie Monster Cake.

on March 23, 2010

So My youngest can say very few words that can be understood in english. Cookie is his favorite and sooo is cookie monster from sesame street.  So for his 2nd birthday ( yes i cannot believe he is already turning 2)  I thought” hey a cookie monster cake can’t be that hard right????  I now have a couple bald spots on my head now.  But here goes.

i started off with a simple boxed cake mix. strawberry is what these boys like. i made one 10 inch round in a dreaded spring form pan.  Let that baby cool completely before frosting.

get thee one tub of classic white frosting and dye that baby blue… for me it took one whole bottle of blue liquid food coloring. But some one told me that food coloring paste works better for frosting… good to know for next time.

get another tub of white for the white of his eyes…

You will also need oreos and since there will be left over you will be obligated to eat you might as well get double stuft.

i made cookies fur by dragging a fork lightly over  the blue frosting. when that is all done i scraped the white stuff out of  a row of cookies

blend those babies up in the blender till they are crumbs. i made a stencil out of wax paper laid it on the cake. If I didn’t  his smile would have been really messy.  I sprinkled it in the stencil.  lifted it off and boom. Instant cookie smile.

Piping the eyes was not as easy as it looks might be easier for you but i suck at piping so yeah

then i just stuck some oreo’s on for the black part of his eyes.   Done.

it was a lot simpler then the race car cake.  I hope I get to make another cake soon. NOT MY OWN though… that always makes me grumpy.

Blessings.
