Hi,

I am making a rabbit cake for Easter. I was planning on using a grass tip for the fur but know there are so many talented cake artists on this site that I wondered if anyone has any suggestions for other techniques?

how cute, that's how they do it on ace of cakes, and cake boss, fondant tools, those tongue depressors and popsicle sticks, you can get a pack of those that the craft store. or next time you go to the dr. for a check up ask if you can have some.

I would use fondant and score it with a knife, making lots of little cuts, but not actually cutting the pieces off . . If that makes sense . .

My family loves buttercream and are not big fans of fondant, so I guess I will just stick with the original game plan, but thanks for all the suggestions.

If your family is not opposed or the flavor is not clashing, you could always apply shredded coconut as the outer layer
