Enter the birthday Party Animal Hug Monster cookie! Woooohoo! I have been wishing for a go to birthday cookie all these years and this cookie so fits the bill. The hug monster is so easy to decorate, giving him the party animal effect is just as easy as adding a party hat and rainbow sprinkles! Before you begin, check out our how-to-ice Hug Monster video on Sweet Dani B TV for all the details. Then follow these easy variations to create the Party Animal version…

Have all your supplies ready to go. To make the party animal hat, cut a triangle out of fondant. We used our mini triangle cutter from our banner cookie cutter set.

Next they watched me eat a healthy breakfast…

Party Animals love pink champange!

… then for lunch, we ordered a pink champange slope side!

Whew! Dodged a bullet there!

Happy hour S’mores by the fire! (‘Whew! Dodged a bullet there,’ thought my cookie friend.)

Birthday cake too! You shouldn't have! (now you know why we started this day with yogurt!)

We had a fun and hug filled birthday, cracking ourselves up taking him from place to place. I hope you make cookie friends with this Party Animal on your birthday this year! More fun to come with our hug monster cookie cutter at Halloween and Holiday time! (((HUGS))) Xo Dani
