Mouse wanted to have a special cake for Tigger's Cookie Monster 1st birthday. So we decided to make some Elmo inspired vanilla cupcakes to compliment the big chocolate Cookie Monster Cake. The Elmo cupcakes would also match Mouse's Elmo hood costume for the party.
My lovely brother and niece made the cupcakes for me using this recipe. We halved the recipe to make only 12 cupcakes as we had so much cake with the big cake as well!

We then iced the cupcakes with butter cream icing. Recipe here.
We tinted the icing slightly red with food colouring.
Then dipped the cupcakes into red sprinkles.

To make Elmo's cute features I used.
White chocolate melts for eyes with a little dark chocolate dabbed on to make the iris.
Sugared jubes for his nose.
Mini oreos for his mouth (I think big ones would work too).

These tasted amazing and Mouse was super happy to get his own cakes. Check out the b

This is so cute! I love the use of sprinkles to may him all fuzzy! Looks awesome! Perfect with your big cookie monster cake!

Thanks Rebecca, I mainly used sprinkles as my piping of icing is so bad! But I also think it looks fuzzy too.
