How to Make Elmo Cupcakes

Updated on May 31, 2017

My name is Jenny Marie & I am currently in college studding video and multimedia design. I love crafting, cooking and creating new projects!

Birthdays can be stressful; however, a great tip is to make these cupcakes in advance. I would wait to add the smile the morning of the party so that the black frosting does not bleed.

What You Will Need

  • Cupcakes
  • Frosting
  • Jumbo Candy Eyes
  • Wilton Gel Food Dye
  • Wilton Cake Decorating Tips 8, 12 and 233
  • Wilton Cake Decorating Bag (I like disposable bags for easy clean up)

I have used other brands than Wilton, but Wilton is the best quality cake decorating supplies.

Instructions

  1. After you baked and cooled your cupcakes, you will want to put your tip 233 (grass tip) in and fill it with red frosting.
  2. Now with using the video below as an example, with your wrists at a 90 degree angle apply pressure to your cake decorating bag and pull directly up to make Elmo's fur. Make sure you leave room for the mouth like I did in the photo below. Make sure that you pay attention to your pressure and lighten yoru pressure when you coming up.
  3. Now using tip 12 fill the cake decorating bag with orange frosting and make a nose.
  4. Add your jumbo eyes and the day of the party fill in the mouth area with black frosting using a tip 8.

      I know just what you mean. I've had friends come over and offer to help me cook, then stare at me blankly when I ask them to do something that seems second-nature to me.

      Yes they are I always get asked to make them for bake sales. That is a great suggestion sometimes after you make stuff for so long you forget to add steps like that!

      These are ADORABLE! You must be really popular with the kids.

      The videos will be really helpful for novices. I would also add that it's good to do a little practicing before you start working on the cupcakes. Getting the right pressure and lifting motion can take a couple of tries.
