Cookie Monster cupcakes

Aren't these the cutest?! And they're surprisingly simple to make :)

What you need:

Buttercream icing
Blue food colouring
Giant white chocolate buttons
Chocolate chips
Icing bag and #233 tip
Small cookies (I used mini Maryland ones)

How to make them:

1. Make regular cupcakes, whatever flavour you like - I did vanilla but coloured the sponge orange
2. While they're cooking make your buttercream icing (I used a nearly 2:1 ratio, full recipe here)
3. Add some blue food colouring to the icing and mix well
4. Make the eyes by using a small amount of melted chocolate to stick a chocolate chip onto a giant white button. You'll need double the number of cakes you're making (ie 2 eyes per cake). Put in the fridge for 15 minutes to set fully
5. Cut a small "mouth" out of each cupcake (once cooled) and check it's big enough for a cookie
6. Then remove the cookie and ice the top of the cakes with a #233 tip. Make sure you leave the mouth empty
7. Add the cookie to the mouth and two eyes

Ta-da - the cutest monster cupcakes ever!
