Cookie Monster cupcakes

Cookie Monster Cupcakes will go down a treat at any little kids party and with this technique they will be done quickly without the use of any fancy equipment.

You will need:
Cupcakes (vanilla cake recipe at bottom of princess cake post or chocolate cake recipe)
Blue Buttercream (buttercream recipes can be found here)
White chocolate melts or Candy Melts
Mini m&m’s
mini choc chip cookies (look in the multi pack bags)
ziplock plastic bag

Using a small amount of butter cream ‘glue’ a brown mini m&m onto the white chocolate melt to make the eye.
Fill your ziplock bag with blue butter cream and then around one corner make lots of holes with a skewer. Generously cover you cupcake with blue swirls of buttercream.
Add the eyes, make a line for the mouth using a knife and then add the cookie. DONE!

Watch the video below for a demonstration – keep watching to the end to see my youngest enjoying a cupcake!

  1. I want to make them for the school burthday (30 pcs needed…) of my daughter but I wonder if the butter cream stays soft (thus high risk)

    • Hi Annique, buttercream will be firm in the fridge and go softer as it warms. It is best to serve them fresh.

  2. These are soo cute i made them today. Everyone loved them.

    • lovely Rachel 😀 thanks for sharing

  3. oops sorry! posted this three times!! Epic fail!!!

  4. Hi, Ann! When I found your website, (thanks to my friend Morgan ) U were my new obsession!!! I made your 3d heart inside cupcakes for mothers day ,some of them were more of an oval shape : ) I’m making your cookie monsters today for my brother and I’s babysitter as our parents are at a party

    • Thanks for the feedback Ella.

  5. Hi Ann, witch would be best for the cookie monsters, liquid food colouring or gel food colouring? 🙂

    • Hi Holly, Gel colouring would be better but liquid colouring is okay.

      • Hello again, I think you are amazing. You are extremely artistic and thank you so much for replying, I am a huge fan!!! 😀

  6. Thank you soo much! You gave me a wonderful idea for my dad’s birthday I made him one big cake instead of heaps of cupcake. Here are the pics:

  7. yummy its looks amazing !!

  8. yummm!! it looks wonderful i always love watching your videos and im only 12 years old when i started watching your videos i always want to make them however i do know how to make red velvet and its amazing.

  9. Had to make these on a 15 dollar budget so had to improvise with the white chocolate. It was for school and I think they came out well based on the fact that we only had 45 mins to make them

    • Great job Tom I like them

  10. Dear Ann

    Even though my mums kitchen was full of blue butter cream I enjoyed making these little guys ~ I’m following you on Instagram and subscribed. I’ve watched pretty much every YouTube video on your channel LUV IT.
    Went to a tea party and these cookie monster cupcakes were gone in seconds 😉 thanks again ann for sharing your amazing talent with others

  11. Oh, and for anything i just could not find any of the white chocolate melts, so i melted some white chocolate and kind of made my own 🙂

  12. Hi, Ann. My name is Anastasia and i love your web site
    Just finished up the cookie monster cup cakes 🙂 they look good, especially, for a beginner… However, I do have a question, it is about your own butter cream … i did everything by the instruction, but i did not get any liquid to come out when i was weeping the heavy cream… at first, the cream had a great consistency… but when i tried the zip lock bag icing it just felt little runny and the curls did not come out… 🙁 Still looks great though… just want to troubleshoot the mistake
    Thank you for you time 🙂

  13. 😀

  16. Hi Ann! My friends party is coming up and she wants some strawberryshortcakes but I don’t know how to make it so if you can upload a video or a recipe that would be great!!!

  17. When i try to do the piping it flows every where with the help of the holes in the piping bag what should i do

  18. I love ur designs so I tried these cookie monster but didnt have enough blue food colouring to get the full affect xx
