"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Sesame Street Cupcakes


We were busy this weekend, playing Sesame Street!
We had a birthday party for my 2 year old.
 These cupcakes were simple and inexpensive to make.
1 box of cake mix, 1 jar of vanilla frosting, 1 box of the cheapo food coloring, Wilton Brand candy eyeballs found at Walmart and different toppings for each character.  Here is the breakdown:
Cookie Monster- 
1/2 chocolate chip cookie, candy eyes
Oscar-
brown cake sprinkles, 1/2 mint cookie, 1/2 fruit snack for the tongue, candy eyeballs
 Elmo-
1/2 Oreo cookie, orange Sixlet for the nose and candy eyeballs
Big Bird-
candy eyeballs dipped in blue frosting, a fruit snack cut in half and opened as a beak
 I'll share how I made the personalized Sesame Street Sign later on.
