12 Cupcakes (I used the Lemon and Poppyseed recipe on this website and substituted vanilla for the lemon and poppyseeds)
The frosting I made using a vegetable shortening (in Aus its called So Lite, I think in the US Crisco is similar) and icing sugar mixture. You could use butter cream but the frosting is pure white and colours beautifully. You would need to double the buttercream you usually use for 12 cupcakes
Blue colouring - use a good one for the best colour
Coconut - dyed blue to match the frosting
12 Choc chip cookies
Melted white and dark chocolate to make the eyes.
I used an icecream scoop full of frosting to get the right shape and then dipped in it coconut. Press the coconut on and tidy up the shape.
When the frosting has firmed a little cut a slice out near the bottom and push a cookie in (you may have to trim the cookie little depending on the size of your cookies). Or make his mouth further up and put cookie pieces around it.
The eyes I made by using melted white to make a circle and then dark chocolate in the middle. Don't make them all exactly the same - it adds a bit of character to the finished cakes!
