I'm considering doing a bunnytown bunny head for my son's first birthday cake. I've only done eight cakes, and the couple that have been buttercream have been disasters--I'm much more comfortable with fondant.
So how should I try and get the fur to look slightly fur-like? It's not really a shaggy fur or smooth like felt, the bunnies are kind of fuzzy. Would buttercream work best?
I don't mind trying something I haven't done before and messing it up, but I thought it may help to get some insight on the right icing and the right type of technique to use.
Maybe you could use the grass tip with the bc icing, just make short strokes. Also, I suggest trying the pattern on a plate of wax paper just to see if it's the look you want.
You could also use a coarse paintbrush on the BC icing using a stroke that pulls up at the end to draw the BC into little peaks and also makes a neat texture. I have used that for cats and dogs and liked the look.
