I'm stealing the blog from Jo today.
I just had to share my Cookie Monster cake. He turned out too cute not to share.
He was really simple too.
You can make him whatever flavor you like - I would go with our Vanderwolf's Family Secret Chocolate Cake so he is all dense and chocolatey and delicious AS WELL AS adorable.
I mean, check out this photo of how the drool inducing this cake is on the inside...
Okay, now that I have convinced you to make Cookie Monster chocolate... he is really super simple to put together.
Cookie Monster Cake
1 oval shaped chocolate cake, baked and cooled
1 can frosting, tinted blue
1 tube black frosting
2 large marshmallows
3 - 4 chocolate chip cookies
Spread a thin layer of blue frosting evenly over the cake.
Then, using a toothpick, trace out where you would like the mouth to be. Using the piping tip that is used to make fur/grass, pipe the remaining blue frosting over the top and sides of cake to cover his face - be sure to leave the marked out mouth area without blue frosting.
After you have finished the blue, use the black tube of icing and fill in the mouth area.
Place the marshmallows at the top of the cake for Cookie's eyes and dab 2 black circles of icing for pupils.
Now you can break up the chocolate chip cookies and place them in his mouth and all over the platter.
It's that easy.
Isn't he adorable?
Okay, I will let Jo go back to her recipes now...for a little while.....
