Im such a novice to cake making/decorating but will be making a cookie monster cake for my son's 2nd birthday.

I have ordered the Wilton Cookie Monster pan, waiting for it to arrive.

So i have browsed the pics on here and i like the ones where the blue icing is done like fur? Its not the normal flower like icing im used to seeing (sorry i have no idea of the names of different types)

so what sort of tools/tricks would i need to do this?

Thanks for your help ive been looking at so many wonderful cakes on here and its really got me motivated to start doing them!!

Any buttercream will work, just make sure its not too stiff. (you will know if it is and you can just add a little more liquid til its right). You want to use the grass/fur tip, not sure which # it is, but it has a lot of little holes.

Off the top of my head I'd say the tip number was 233.

Thank you so much, I had a lot of fun doing this one. I just cut the legs off the stand up bear pan and repositoned them in the front. I did this to a Hello Kitty and Wilbur the Pig cake also! Have a great day!!! thumbs_up.gif

both of those cakes are amazing!
im not sure if im setting myself for disaster here, having never done anything like this before.

this is going to sounds very ridiculous but what is a number #233?
is it a special brand piping tool with that many different tips?!?!

i can hear everyone giggling at my lack of knowledge for this stuff already!!

It's the number assigned to a particular tip. It has lots of holes in it and you pull away from the cake as you pipe to create the grass/fur. HTH

its a wilton tip. tip # 233. i believe that it is sold in a set of two, the other being the basket weave tip. anyway, the tip has a bunch of holes in it (probably 8 or 9) so that when you pipe your icing out, it comes out in little strings. you can use it for grass, hair, fur, someone even posted a pic where use used it for a cool streamer-like border.

I bought my tip 233 by itself at Michael's. It was less than $3 Canadian, so it's even cheaper in the US. I've used it for grass, fur, etc. It's great. It fits a normal sized coupler too, which is nice.
