Ingredients

  1. 3 sticks of butter
  2. 3 pounds powdered sugar
  3. 3/4 cup heavy cream
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. Blue food coloring
  6. Black food coloring
  7. 19 unfrosted vanilla cupcakes
  8. 1 large chocolate chip cookie
  9. Mini chocolate chip cookies
  1. Special tools:
  2. Grass piping tip

Directions

  1. In a stand mixer, cream your butter until smooth. Add in powdered sugar, heavy cream, and salt until the consistency is smooth but not too thick.
  2. Separate the buttercream into three different bowls, two small bowls for the white eyes and black details (about 3/4 cups each) and one large bowl for the blue fur. Fold blue food coloring into the large bowl of frosting until a nice bold blue is reached, and mix in the black food coloring into one of the small bowls, leaving the last bowl white.
  3. Arrange cupcakes into the shape of Cookie Monster's face on a 19x13 inch cake board.
  4. Pipe out white frosting onto the two cupcakes that will be Cookie Monster's eyes.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, top the remaining cupcakes with blue frosting and smooth with a spatula until the frosting is even and there are no holes.
  6. Pipe out the pupils and smile with the black frosting, making sure to fill in the mouth.
  7. Add your remaining blue frosting into a piping bag attached with a grass tip. Pipe out the cookie monster fur on the remaining blue space until it's covered.
  8. Add a chocolate chip cookie to the corner of the mouth and pipe out a hand and fingers on top. Garnish with addition mini cookies and enjoy!
