Elmo Birthday Cupcakes 030

 

I usually like to go “all-out” with my kids’ birthday cakes, so “just” doing cupcakes was a stretch for me.  It actually turned out to be perfect since we ended up having a morning party and serving brunch.  Besides, these Elmo cupcakes were just too cute for words.

Decorating tips

In a circular pattern frost each cupcake with the red frosting making small stars.

Next, pull apart each Oreo Cookie, scrape off the creme (I won’t judge if you eat it) and cut the cookies in half to make Elmo’s mouth.  Just push it gently into the frosting to secure it.

Use an orange Reese’s’ Pieces candy for the nose and two Wilton candy eyes.  Viola!  Be sure to wait until right before the party to put the eyes on or the black color will bleed.

Since we had a morning party we served a breakfast/brunch.  It was so fun to do something a little different.  We served crock pot egg bake, fruit (Elmo-style), muffins, caramel rolls, banana bread, chocolate milk and coffee.  The fruit trays were a hit.  They were made with strawberries/watermelon  (head), Cutie orange (nose), blueberries (mouth), marshmallow with edible marker (eyes).  I found the mini milk bottles at Hobby Lobby.  They came with lock lids, but I just took those off.  Michael’s had true milk bottles, but they weren’t on sale 😉

I think the Birthday Boy enjoyed his Elmo Cupcake!  What do you think?
