Ingredients
200g unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method
  • Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced oven. Line muffin tin with paper cases.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter, vanilla and sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition (mixture will separate at this stage). Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in half the flour. Stir in half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk until combined.
  • For 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pans use 2 level tablespoons of mixture. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes.
  • Stand cakes in pans for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • To assemble cupcakes make icing according to packet instructions
  • Half mixture into two bowls and add food colouring
  • Add a little coconut to a bowl and add in a few drops of coconut. Mix through and set aside.
  • Spread one colour of icing on each cupcake and start to assemble. For the elmo's turn the white chocolate buttons upside down and place two on fr eyes
  • Place a dot of icing on the brown mnm's on the side with the m on it and stick on the middle of the white button
  • Place an orange on for the nose and cut a half of an oreo in half for the mouth and stick on
  • For the cookie monsters you can repeat the process or you can first dip them in the coconut and the repeat the process leaving off the orange mnm
  • Cookie monste looks cool with crazy eyes so the brown mnm's can be place one at the top and one at the bottom.
