my husband requested a simple bunny cake for Easter, but demands cream cheese frosting. I bought the duncan hines cream cheese frosting. Will this go thru the grass tip enough to make some fur?

The canned frosting will not hold up as well as homemade , but it should work......

It will go through the tip, but my experience with cream cheese frosting is that is doesn't hold a peak like BC does, so it may not look as much like grass as using BC. The canned stuff might be a little stiffer, I have not tried piping with it.

I have not used the canned frosting for grass but I use homemade cream cheese frosting for my carrot cake and pipe grass with it. The trick for me) is to keep it cool. If it starts getting warm put it away for awhile. You can see my bunny cake in my pics. Both of those are with cream cheese frosting.

^Agree with the keeping cool thing. I've piped (home made) cream cheese frosting through grass tips many times, it worked fine. Success would depend on the frosting consistency though.
