Pink monster cupcakes


I have always wanted to try and make a cookie monster cake.

I was eagerly waiting for someone to have a baby shower party, but no such luck.

Then a lady in HR announced that she was expecting and would be going off at the end of the month.

I jumped at the opportunity to bake a cake and some cupcakes.

Fingers crossed it would be a boy, but alas it was a girl, seeing as I had already bought the candy eyes, I thought why not make a pink cookie monster cupcakes???

So that it was I did and it was super-duper easy to make. Of course I decided to make these butter cream cupcakes on the hottest day this month.

To make these cupcakes, you will need:


  • 12 x plain vanilla cupcakes.
  • 500g of butter cream icing that is coloured pink.
  • A piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.
  • Pink smarties for the nose.
  • 1 x packet of Mini ginger nut biscuits, cut in half
  • Candy eyes.


  • Fill your piping bag with your butter cream icing.
  • Pipe stars all around the cupcake.
  • Place 2 candy eyes near the top.
  • In the middle place a smartie for the nose.
  • Then take one half of your ginger nut biscuit and place it near the bottom of the cupcake for the mouth.
  • Repeat till all your cupcakes are done.
