Once again, begin by baking awesome cupcakes using
my Hershey's awesome cake/cupcake recipe. Yes, I am going to beat this to death and mention it in every post. It's that good.
For Oscar, you will need....
cupcakes (see above recipe hint)
icing coloured with Wilton's no taste green food colouring
2 white chocolate wafers (aka candy melts) per cupcake
mini chocolate chips or more chocolate icing
Using Wilton's no taste green food colouring, pipe Oscar's fur onto the cupcake using a star tip.
Break apart the Oreos, scrape off (and eat!) the icing, break the Oreos in half and shove the cookie right into Oscar's mouth area. You want him to look like he's grimacing, not smiling! I tried the upside down smile-turned-frown, but that just looked weird. We did this and it worked for me! Also put the white chocolate wafers (aka candy melts) on for his eyes. Oscar's eyes are not on the top of his head like Elmo and Cookie Monster, so make sure to put them lower down, and make sure they are not touching each other. Perfectionist, anyone?!
I wasn't sure I'd have enough chocolate icing left to use for Oscar's unibrow, but Emma came up with a fantastic idea - use upside down mini chocolate chips! Stagger them close together to get that accurate bushy unibrow.
Pipe chocolate icing for the pupils - centred and not as cross-eyed as Elmo's.
And voila! Oscar the Grouch!
