Cookie Monster Cupcakes

My youngest turned one way back in September and we had a Cookie Monster party for him as a family. My kids love Sesame Street and Cookie Monster is one of their favorite characters. It only seemed right to focus his little party around that furry cookie fanatic!

These cupcakes are perfect for a Cookie Monster party because they’re so easy to put together. No crazy piping of fur or drawing on silly eyeballs. They’re one of my favorite cupcakes I’ve made. And my kids thought they were hilarious.

    I made these this weekend for my daughter’s Sesame Street-themed birthday party and they were a huge hit! They were simple to make and delicious! I am going to save this frosting recipe to make with a bunch of other stuff in the future – it’s delicious!
