Why Make Homemade Cupcakes?

My Cookie Monster cupcakes look difficult to make; however, they are actually very simple to whip out! I learned how to decorate cakes from my grandma, and she always taught me that the more complex-looking cupcakes are often the easiest to make.

I originally made these cupcakes for my cousin’s birthday. When looking at local bakeries, I saw that decorated cupcakes start at $1.75 per cupcake, which includes a simple decoration, but the price increases depending on the complexity of the decoration. These cupcakes look complex, but are actually easy to make. So I thought that instead of buying them, I would make them at a fraction of the cost. So I am here to give you a tutorial and a step-by-step guide on how to make these easy DIY Cookie Monster cupcakes.

What You Will Need

  • Cupcakes
  • Frosting
  • Jumbo Candy Eyes
  • Mini Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Wilton Gel Food Dye
  • Wilton Cake Decorating Tip 233
  • Wilton Cake Decorating Bag (I like disposable bags for easy clean up)

1. Cut an Opening in Each Cupcake

After you've baked and cooled your cupcakes, you will want to cut a small rectangle out of the cupcake where you chips ahoy chocolate chip cookie will go.

2. Add the Cookie

Now you will want to insert your cookie into the rectangle that you just cut out.

3. Get Your Blue Frosting Ready

After you have completed steps 1 and 2 you will want to put your tip 233 (grass tip) in and fill it with blue frosting. This video below is very helpful!

4. Frost the Cupcakes

Now, using the video below as an example, with your wrists at a 90-degree angle, apply even pressure to your cake decorating bag and pull directly up to make Cookie Monster’s fur.

Make sure that you are paying attention to your pressure and lightening up on the pressure when you are coming up. If you make a mistake, you can always scrape the frosting off with a knife and start over again.
