My mother pretending to need my class so I feel better about myself when really, she could be teaching this class.
To make a super easy cookie monster cake, I showed the class how to make a dome for the head using a round cake pan for one layer of the cake and the other layer using a Pyrex bowl, though this could be done using two round cakes, trimming the top layer after it is stacked to make it a dome shape.
Then we crumb coated the cake and proceeded to cover the entire thing with bright blue fur using a star tip.
After covering the cake with fur, use black frosting for the mouth and pupils of the eyes, and white frosting for the eyes. I also like to stick some cookies in his mouth.
I learned to make this cake when I was 10 and made it for all of my friend's birthdays. I would have put his eyes higher up on his head with this cake, but forgot what he looked like since it has been many, many years since I was 10 (I will not mention exactly HOW many).
