These are fabulous!! I had a Cookie Monster teddy when I was younger (not sure where it is now though - probably hidden away in the parent's loft somewhere) but last time I saw it, you could still make out the remnants of biscuits where I had repeatedly rammed them in his mouth pretending that he was eating them!! haha
Someone on twitter posted a picture of these cakes and then passed my the recipe link.
I am planning to make them at the weekend but if you want to beat me to the kitchen here's the recipe...
- Use an icecream scoop full of frosting to get the right shape and then dipped in it coconut. Press the coconut on and tidy up the shape.
- When the frosting has firmed a little cut a slice out near the bottom and push a cookie in (you may have to trim the cookie little depending on the size of your cookies). Or make his mouth further up and put cookie pieces around it.
- The eyes are made by using melted white to make a circle and then dark chocolate in the middle. Don't make them all exactly the same - it adds a bit of character to the finished cakes!
- Simple - very messy and lots of fun!
Anyways, they look great :)
