This was inspired by a picture I’d seen on the internet of a Cookie Monster cupcake (you may have seen it too – apparently there was a phase when everyone was trying to re-create it). This was actually the first time I’d ever made cupcakes! They were made using a basic vanilla cupcake (use regular, GF/DF, GF vegan – whatever your go-to favourite is!), topped with a layer of icing (icing sugar, water and vanilla essence), a layer of coconut tossed in blue food colouring, and marshmallows with chocolate chips for the eyes (white chocolate chips would probably have been better but I didn’t have any on hand). Then you just cut a slit in the cupcake for the “mouth” and insert a cookie – voilà! Cookie Monster!
