My husband's birthday cake was chosen by our boys this year....so it's sweet that they thought what a man needed for his 39th was Cookie Monster. Smiley

I love all of the Pinterest fails for this popular cake, and I think it's mainly the eyes that can cause it to look off.  Otherwise, I think that this is an easy cake to make for kiddos (or grown men who love the Muppets, of course). 

While they aren't a perfect match, giant plastic googly eyes do a decent job of keeping the cartoon-y nature of the cake, and they are way easier than dipping Oreos in white chocolate or making something out of fondant.  Also, you have to keep them shoved up next to each other for them to keep from falling off (this was a double layer 8 inch cake), and I think a lot of the weird looking cakes make the mistake of spacing the eyes apart.  My four year old was displeased that I made the eyes out of something inedible, though. He got over it. ;-)  I've had these eyes stashed away for years after seeing them in the dollar section at Target, but they're readily available on Amazon for pretty cheap.

I think it would look better if it was frosted with a grass tip, but I don't have one, so I used a plain open star.  This is an easy and forgiving frosting technique, but it's a bit tedious. I really felt how much my mom loved me when she made me character cakes in the 80s with lots of different colors using Wilton specialty pans.  Lol. 

The inside was yellow cake and cookie dough frosting.  I just googled a good recipe for that.  I lived dangerously and didn't toast the flour since I was just serving it at home, and my kids eat enough raw dough when we bake to make that worry laughable.  Smiley  The cookies are store bought, and my kids pretty much just picked them off and picked at the homemade cake.  Roll Eyes  (To be fair, Sprouts makes dang delicious cookies.)

That is so cute and absolutely perfect! I'm glad the kids got to be part of the decisions too

That looks great and really funny expression on Cookie's face too Cheesy.

You rocked this cake! It looks fantastic

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
