You can use either RI or buttercream. icon_smile.gif

Here's a 3D Elmo RKT cake topper tutorial:
(Which also shows how to cover in RI.)

I think royal or bc would work just the same. I wouldn't do a bc layer though because the fur doesn't have to be smooth. Are you using the grass tip? Make sure you let me know when you post! I can never look at enough Elmo cakes!! icon_lol.gif

It's my understanding that RI will not set up if it comes in contact with the grease in BC; so you might not want to use both. I'm not sure how it would turn out. icon_confused.gif
