Grover Cupcakes

Guess who? It's GROVER!
This is #4 on my Sesame Street Adventure!
Grover is super easy to make!

Here is what you need:
Cupcakes
white and black fondant
Pink Peanut M&M's (from the Valentine selection- Easter would work as well)
Sandwich type cookies cut in half
blue icing (I used a mix of royal blue and sky blue)
pinkish red icing (mix of red and pink)
Tip 233
Tip 12

While cupcakes are baking, prepare the eyes or eyes may be prepared in advance. Roll white fondant to 1/8 inch thick, cut with opposite end (wide side) of size 12 tip and shape into an oval. Using the small opening of the size 12 tip cut out black pupils. Glue together with a food safe brush and a very small dab of water. Be careful, too much water and the black will bleed.
For the mouth, cut the sandwich cookies in half.  Using pinkish red icing in zipper bag with tiny corner snipped off, outline bottom lip of cookie.
Ice cupcake in blue using piping bag fitted with tip 233, using a squeeze and release motion cover the cupcake. Assemble as shown in photo and that's it!

Grover did seem to have a hard time keeping his hands off the cupcakes! He just wanted to reach out and grab the other cupcakes, so I had to have him keep his hands crossed!
Look for a new Sesame Street Character next Tuesday!

  2. I love seeing Grover getting some press time. I feel like he's a very underappreciated muppet and he deserves so much more. You did a wonderful job on these cupcakes!

  18. My husband just walked behind my chair to take a peak at my screen and said, "can you make me one of those Grover Cupcakes". I said, are you kidding me, do you see all those little spikes in that frosting, the lady who makes these is VERY TALENTED, we will just enjoy hers! Hope you have a fabulous week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
