Before I start I want to make it clear these are not my idea,I saw them on a blog & regretfully didn't add the blog to my favourites,so if anyone here knows the blog I would be more than happy to add the link to my post :)
Ok with that clarified I will babble on...lol.I had seen these on a blog & promised Darragh I would make them with him this week,as luck would have it I am sick & kept putting it off but today just had to keep my promise.They were very fun to make,Darragh is only 5 & loved messing with the icing & placing the cookie in the monsters mouth & attaching the eyes,definetly a fun evening for him :).
Have to say the blue icing left his mouth rather coloured,even his teeth,hopefully we won't be repeating theses again too soon....lol
Too start off we made a small amount of cookie dough & made mini cookies....
Then used the basic cupcake mix off...
8oz Plain Flour
8oz Castor Sugar
2 Tsp of Baking Powder
The icing consisted of....
225grms of Butter
400grms of Icing sugar
The colours I used to get the one I needed were
Sugarflair Baby Blue
Americolor Eletric Blue
I placed the icing on the cake with a knife,added the cookie & then mashed with a fork to get the hairy look....lol
Then I used some white chocolate buttons,melted some milk chocolate & piped it onto the white buttons & placed them on the cupcake as eyes ( sorry for the quality of the pics ).....
Thanks for looking :)
