Very easy to make!
This is my very first post, so please leave a comment on what you think!!!
– premade vanilla cupcakes
– vanilla icing
– blue food coloring
– marshmallow eyes/chocolate chips
– chocolate chip cookies
Thought i would share something simple, yet lots of fun! I have seen these posted several places and i had to try! Made these little monsterz as a get well prize for a young friend, cheered him up fast! 🙂 but I think these would be great to make with the kids!
Start off with baked cupcakes that have cooled. Color your icing blue and add a small layer of frosting on the cupcake. Then lay the cookie on the cupcake (towards the front so it hangs out). Then, all i did was take a small piece of another cupcake i wasn’t going to decorate and placed it toward the back of the cupcake (over back half of cookie) to create a bump for the head. Then i frosted that piece and around it with the blue icing, ( try to make it furry looking by tapping with butter knife all over frosting). I added same color sprinkles to give more texture. See, not hard at all. For the eyes, i just flattened mini marshmallows and glued on a chocolate chip with the icing. I recommend placing these in fridge quickly after making to let icing harden a tad. Seems like the heads try to slide off if frosting is too creamy. I’m sure this would work for Elmo and Oscar too with red and green coloring!
Like i say, this was my first post… so feel free to leave comments or suggestions and please register!! Happy Krafting!
