I see a lot of really adorable Sesame Street cupcakes online, but not a whole lot of clear instructions on how to decorate them. Maybe the steps would be obvious to an experienced baker, but not a total novice like me. I need a list of tools, candies, tricks… I want brand names and step-by-step instructions!
Enter Maria of Chef Mommy! Sesame Street characters are one of Maria’s specialties as a baker and decorator, and I’ve featured her work before in my round-up of the best Sesame Street cakes and cupcakes. She’s posted a very specific set of instructions on how to make a Sesame Street smash cake and cupcakes on her blog, and it has all the answers you might need to decorate Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch cupcakes. She even has instructions on how to make a tiny Sesame Street smash cake using basic fondant techniques. So no more wondering which frosting tip to use where, or what brand of cookies to buy for Cookie Monster (spoiler alert: Famous Amos!).
Check out Maria’s post for all the of the how-to’s here.
