elmo cupcakes

my son turned two today! and although we're having a big circus birthday party for him & his brother {they're both june babies} in a few weeks, we celebrated today as well. he loves i decided to make him some elmo cupcakes! i've seen a lot of different ideas floating around the web for elmo cakes/cupcakes etc. here's my own version of them.

how i made them:

i piped red frosting on using a grass tip to make the red elmo fur
used oreo cookies for the mouths
used orange gumballs for the noses
and used white candy melts for the eyes

my little guy LOVED them! these would be perfect for any elmo/sesame street themed party!

I've wanted to make Elmo cupcakes for a long time, but I couldn't figure out how to do the mouth. Using an oreo cookie is GENIUS! Glad I stumbled on your blog.

LOVE your Elmo cupcakes! My son is turning 2 next month and a big Elmo fan ... looks like a fun project to get into! What did you use for the black beads of his eyes?

great idea! i made these for my niece's 2nd birthday party and she absolutely loved them. here are some cheap hints...

1. for the icing, i just used basic food coloring dye. you'll need a lotttt of red drops and a couple blue drops to keep it from looking too pink.

2. a super easy way to achieve the furry look is to slather on the icing, and then prick the surface with a fork repeatedly. it goes pretty quickly and doesn't require any special gadgets.

Where can I buy the white candy melts, brown m&m's and orange gumballs? I'm a bit clueless! Also, how do you get the m&m's to stay on the candy melts?

kara's party ideas said...

You can find the candy melts at walmart in the cake decorating section. The mini m&m's were purchased at walmart as well. The orange gumball were purchased at the gas station.

Thank you for posting these (I know it has been over a year, but I just googled Elmo cupcakes and your blog came up). I am planning an Elmo themed party for my son and when he saw the picture you posted he was so excited and said "Momo, Momo!" (his name for Elmo). I was going to do cake pops, but I am thinking these will be easier!

silly question are these mini cupcakes?

Hi Kara! LOVE the cupcakes! I will be making them for my daughter's 2nd b-day. Quick question, how did you get the m&m's to stick to the candy melts?

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.
