Drew just turned 1! He was still in the belly for the baby celebration that I made the green onesies for from this post.
The party theme was Sesame Street, and I got to make all the treats!
Of course there had to be character cookies. I don’t have the cutters, so I made do with what I had. Cookie Monster and Elmo were created with a flower cutter and an egg cutter. For Big Bird I just bent my balloon cutter a bit to make the beak straight.
For these characters, I knew black outlining was the way to go. It really make the features and colors pop.
As always, I free-handed the designs. Cuz that’s how I roll.
Last minute I decided I had to have cookie cereal to go on the cookie monster cookies. I got the idea from cupcakes like this that I’m sure just about everyone has seen at some point. It’s pretty genius whoever thought of it!
I also made cupcakes in the same colors as the characters. Piped simple swirls, and make custom cupcake toppers.
My husband actually made them on the computer for me and I just cut and put them together.
My most favorite part was the smash cake! Mama asked for it to be Cookie Monster, so I swirled it in bright blue frosting and piped the happy little face on the top.
Then I stuck cookie cereal to the sides.
Mama said Drew loved his cake. Once he got started, it was hard to get him to stop!
