So, for Elmo, I dyed some vanilla frosting with "Christmas Red" and used a decorator tip (perhaps #22 but I don't remember!) to make his fur. Then I used jumbo marshmallows (halved) for his eyes, an orange peanut M&M for his nose, and half of an oreo for his mouth. For his eyeballs, i just piped chocolate frosting in small dots!
Careful with those oreos, use a serated knife!!
Can you get enough of these, i mean really!?
And for grover, I basically did the same thing as far as icing, except blue, used MINI marshmallows, and a RED peanut M&Ms :) WAY TOO CUTE!
Here he is, head on!
And just for the full oreo effect... here he is one last time!
These are a blast. I found red and blue cupcake holders which were AWESOME! I highly reccomend using them, it adds to the little character! Have fun with these! For more character ideas (and probably better looking cucakes)... check out lovelysprinkles.blogspot.com!!!
