Short And Sweet. Elmo Cupcakes.

I’m feeling extra good today. I’m wearing my fabulous new boots and smiling back at all of these terrifically cheerful Elmos. I found out about the boots over here when a friend wrote about how much she loved hers. This same friend also has an Elmo loving child who has a birthday in March. I decided to try and come up with an easy Elmo cupcake that any busy mother of little ones could whip up in a jiffy.

Most of the Elmo Cupcakes I’ve seen images of have piped frosting to make his scraggly hair. Those come out awfully cute, but I decided to simplify and go the route of the Cookie Monster Cupcakes I made and use sanding sugar instead. Fast, cute and ready to tickle anyone, young or old.
