Take a look at the coolest Oscar the Grouch birthday cake photos. You’ll also find loads of homemade cake ideas and DIY birthday cake inspiration.
I used the doll mold for the head and cut part of the top off to make the Oscar the Grouch head more round. I used an 8″ round for the lid on top of his head. If I needed more cake I would have used 10″ rounds on the bottom for the garbage can. I free formed the face off of an Oscar the Grouch picture.
I made this for my nephew that likes Oscar the Grouch and came up with the style by using different pans that I had.
Very easy – used a box chocolate cake and ready made frosting. Dyed frosting green and frosted each Oscar the Grouch cupcake. I used the un-dyed frosting to make large ball shapes (base of eyes) and then added a chocolate chip point side down for the pupils; piped on chocolate frosting for eyebrow and mouth.
These were a huge hit for my daughters daycare celebration – and the pictures were such a hit that people from work are planning on making them for their upcoming children’s birthdays.
For my twin daughters’ 2nd birthday we did a Sesame Street character theme. I made 2 large cakes for the party guests and 2 individual cakes for my girls.
This Oscar the Grouch cake was made from a 4 inch spring form pan. It makes the perfect size for an individual cake. I had cups with Oscar’s face on them and just tried to copy his look.
For his green fur I used white icing and added green food coloring. With a knife I dabbed at the icing to make it rough and it had little peaks. A toothpick helps to clean up the fine lines.
The eyes are just a dollop of white icing with a dollop of black icing for the irises.
This cake began as small rounds. I stacked 3 of them for the can. Then I cut the 4th in half and placed them back to back on the top of the can. I used a grass pull tip to make Oscar the Grouch’s hair and a 5 for the rest of the decorations. I made the can grey around the outside and black on the top.
