Cookie Monster Cake

Cookie Monster Character cake made for my nephew's first birthday. The cookie cake was his own personal 1-year-old play cake. Both chocolate with chocolate butter cream icing.


  1. I have a question about the cookie cake's frosting color. How'd you get it that gorgeous caramel color?

  2. Thank you for that compliment! Honestly, it was nothing more than throwing in colors until I got it where I liked it. I started with just brown in white buttercream, and DID NOT like the flat color that produces. So then I started adding in small amounts of yellow and either orange or red (I'm sorry, I can't remember exactly which, it's been a long time since I made this - my nephew is now almost 6!) But I think it was orange. I just added a little yellow, then a little orange, then a little yellow, etc, until it came out to what I thought looked like a cookie. Aren't you glad I took precise measurements? :) Hope that helps at least a little, and good luck!
