How to Make Cute Elmo Cupcakes

Do you need to make some Elmo cupcakes for a kid’s birthday party? Here are a few that you might like. These are very easy to make and fun too.

If you have a little one who just adores Elmo (who doesn’t) then he or she might love these little cuties for that special birthday.

Easy Elmo Cupcakes

Elmo Cupcakes

How To Make Them

 

  • White frosting
  • Red food coloring (for Elmo’s fur)
  • Orange food coloring (for nose)
  • Black icing (available for purchase in a tube)
  • Mini Marshmallows (for eyes)
  • Wilton round frosting tip

These cupcakes are simple because they don’t require fancy frosting tips, only the above ingredients and the one round tip!

First, you need to add the red food coloring to your cupcakes and mix thoroughly. Frost them as desired. Use the mini marshmallows for the white’s of Elmo’s eyes. As another option you could also buy the larger marshmallows to make Elmo’s eyes even larger if you wanted to.

 

After you have placed the marshmallows use the tube of black icing to dot the eyes. Once you are done with the eyes proceed to the nose. You can use the mini marshmallow as a nose as well, but before that you need to mix a small portion of white frosting with orange food coloring to make the classic Elmo nose.

Once mixed, use a knife to ice the marshmallow to cover the top and sides. Next, you place it where the nose goes. After this you can use your tube of black frosting to draw on Elmo’s mouth.

A Fuzzy Elmo Cupcake

How To Make Them

 

  • Wilton’s tip #233
  • White frosting
  • Red food coloring (for Elmo’s fur)
  • Orange food coloring (for nose)
  • Black icing (available for purchase in a tube)
  • Mini Marshmallows (for eyes)
  • Wilton round frosting tip

 

These use the exact ingredients as the cupcakes above, however; instead of frosting on the red you will use Wilton’s tip # 233 which makes the fuzzy look. Follow the same steps of the easy Elmo cupcake once you have finished frosting.

If you want to make Elmo’s nose larger then you can take two marshmallows and smush them together in a roundish nose shape. You might want to soften them a little bit by sticking them in the microwave for just 2 to 3 seconds. You can make a whole batch of them all at once and then frost them quickly then pop them into the freezer for a few minutes to firm them up.

Then you will be ready to go when you create your batch.
