You could make "block" or calligraphy style numbers so that you're not trying to cut out a complete oval all in one smooth stroke. Or use a template for the 5 if you think you can cut that out all right and use anything round or oval -- biscuit cutters (they come in so many different sizes), letter O or egg-shaped cutter, shot glass, apple corer -- for the zero. Trace around the inside edge of a small oval picture frame or mat, or the outside of an oval pillbox or jewelry/treasure box. Trace around number shape refrigerator magnets or any similar toy, or grocery-store number candles. If you have time for shopping, take a look at stencils in the scrapbooking and painting aisles of the craft store.
Or make a whole bunch of small circles with a straw, and form the numbers out of them like a "dotted" font. Use your too-small cutters but put the cutouts on top of a simple-shape "plaque" base -- maybe multiple layers -- so that overall it is bigger. Use a plaque with the numbers written on with food coloring markers, or rubber-stamped on -- scrapbooking-style stamps work fine with food coloring, just don't use ones that have already been used with non-edible inks!
Use a computer-printed template as a guide for piping melted-chocolate numbers. It's easy to make a couple dozen, pick the one that came out best, and then re-melt the rejects to be used for something else. :)
Hope something there seems doable. :)
