Like I said in my very first post, I baked poppyseed and blueberry muffins last night. This morning, I turned them into cookie monster cupcakes for my friend’s birthday – it’s an idea I stole from somewhere on The Internets.
I iced the cakes with coloured sugar icing and then dipped them into desiccated coconut, which I had coloured blue before. For the mouths, I cut out tiny pieces of the cakes and stuck cookies into them. The eyes are made from marzipan, with one little chocolate drop each. Somebody recommended more sugar icing to glue the eyes on top of the cakes but that seemed too much hassle; so I just used toothpicks to attach the eyes, which worked just fine.
The poppyseed & blueberry muffins are lovely and moist and not too sweet; I think it all goes rather well together. And both my friend and her four-year-old absolutely loved the cakes! Result!
