Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-17 minutes
Makes: 12 cupcakes

200g unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup milk
Shredded or desicated coconut
Large white chocolate buttons
Brown and orange mnm's or similar
Red food colouring
Blue food colouring
Oreo biscuits, filling removed

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.
