DIY Elmo Cupcakes

A Mommy Squad friend, Sarah, recently made these adorable cupcakes for her daughter's 2nd birthday party.  How cute are they!?!


And here's how you make them. 

Directions:
1. Bake any kind of cupcakes you want. Use Wilton red cupcake liners.
2. After the cupcakes cool, frost one cupcake with a thin layer of frosting. I used white.
3. Use half an Oreo to make the mouth (stick into frosting).
4. Use two large marshmallows for the eyes. Cut a little bit of the edge off each one so they'll stick together. Stick both marhsmallows into the frosting.
5. Use an orange peanut M&M for the nose.
6. Fill in the rest of the cupcake using red icing and a Wilton star tip (#21) to make the fur.
7. Finally, put a dot on each of the marshmallows to make the eyes. I used canned chocolate icing and Wilton tip #5.

Do you think the Birthday Girl, Allie, liked them?



Sarah also put together these super cute, and super quick and easy cookies for her daughter's school buddies to enjoy.  The Elmo's are just the pre-made peel and plop hard icing ones you can get at Walmart or Michaels.  I love this idea for school treats.  Way to go, Sarah!  Thanks for letting me steal share your ideas.

  1. I love getting creative with baking! We did a pink alligator cake for Averee for her birthday after finding out how much it was going to cost to have someone else do it! Thanks for sharing this! I'm sure it is only a matter of time before Averee falls in love with Elmo!

  7. My baby would love these! i love the oreo mouth. I've always been too scared to make cupcakes that are actually supposed to resemble something, but these are just too cute. I think I'll have to try this soon.

  20. Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
    Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
    1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

    The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
    1. Alcohol
    2. Drugs
    3. Preditory "earning"
    4. Homosexuality
    5. Gambling
    6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
    7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
    Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, the Chinese Holocaust.
    It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
    What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

    The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
    It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
    How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
    The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
    I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
    In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
    Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of planet's history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
    Never forget:::It is not a house of Jesus.
    If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new poulation, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.
    Which one is it? Probably both:::
    One transitions into the other, allowing the gods to wash their hands of obligation to their Chosen One.

    You are faced with a lifetime to work and prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time working, etc.
