Sesame Street Cookies-How to make Oscar The Grouch

Happy Tuesday! To be honest, after having a few days off I really didn't feel like going back to work. Except for Sunday that it rained all day,we had a wonderful weekend full of fun time with my little girl and a lot of food.I think I provably gained 5 pounds in 3 days from all the food I consumed.

I hope you had a great weekend too with friends and family.

I have to say that I had so much fun making these cookies for a birthday party in Kansas, although, I wish I had a Kopykake projector for the cookies, it would had been easier to decorate . I'm pretty much use to make Elmo since that is a very popular theme for children's parties, but Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch were totally new to me. This is my first time making then, and I don't think they came out that bad.

Oscar the Grouch

I am not a cookie expert by any means, but here is a little tutorial of the making of Oscar the Grouch

I didn't have an Oscar cookie cutter, so I improvised with an extra flower cutter that I had. You can also make your own template using cardstock or a big plastic lid from a container

I found these pictures online of Big Bird and Oscar. I printed them out as reference and "templates" for my cookies.

For flooding my cookies I don't like the icing too runny. If you have any questions regarding icing consistency,I would recommend you to visit Marian from Sweetopia, she has a fabulous tutorial and post about  How to figure out the right royal icing consistency.

To make Oscar's tongue I used very thin red fondant instead of piping and flooding it with red royal icing. I used a very small heart shape cutter and attached the "tongue" with dab of piping gel.

And here is the cookie!

Well, I hope you all have a great week and thank you for stopping by.

Oh yeah I totally want a Kopykake as well, but yours look great just the way they are.

You don't NEED a kopy kake! The cutter reshaping is genius!!! Love Oscar! This is how I stumbled upon you...I have oscar to make and I was a looking for a cutter!! I feel WAY better now, and I am totally reshaping my cutter.
