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!

Aww, so cute, Carrie! That smash cake is awesome 🙂
These are fabulous Carrie! Your red is so red…I’m envious! I just love the little chocolate chip cookie with the Cookie Monster cookie. Great job!
Love the *Drew* street signs, the delightful cookies and colourful cupcakes. Happy Birthday little Drew 😉
Love the cookies and the cupcakes with the picks. Did you find a template for the name tags?
We modified an image, we did not find a template.
Adorable! Every last bit of it! 😉
Cute cookies. Love your attention to detail! 😀
My daughter would *love* these! She’s an Elmo & Cookie fantactic. I also love that you didn’t use a specific cutter. I’ve been resisting getting an Elmo cutter for a while now. Awesome Carrie! Bookmarking for birthday #3! 🙂
Thanks Michelle! I’m not the best with multi-purposing cutters, but I did what I had to do in this case! And now I know those are cutters I won’t need to buy. 🙂
Hi Carrie. I love all of these 🙂 I was just wondering if you still have the name sign saved and If you’d be willing to share or even sell 🙂 This is exactly what I want for my daughter’s 2nd birthday in a few weeks. My sis is making the cupcakes but I am in charge of the toppers and this is exactly what I would like. Or if you could even let me know what the original one was that you changed…
