If anyone reading this is from my generation, you should automatically know the next line to that tune. I grew up watching Sesame Street as a kid and even to this day, I have a great fondness for that show. I can’t wait to have kids of my own to share Sesame Street with. And I love that they now have the retro episodes on DVD! Sesame Street: Vol. 2 – Old School (1974-1979)
And I will even admit that I have this book on my wish list for Christmas this year.

The client wanted minimal fondant so I had to figure out how to make the cupcakes look like Elmo, Big Bird and Cookie Monster using just buttercream. I did some searching on Flickr to get some ideas and then I grabbed my favorite from a few and went from there.
I think they turned out pretty cute. What do you think?

The only part that is fondant is the black pieces because I hate using really dark buttercream.
These were actually a lot of fun to make even though they were a lot more work.
