AMy son would like a furry looking monster for his birthday cake. I know a grass tip is what I would use, but what kind of frosting would stay in that shape if I covered an entire round cake with it? I am afraid it will start to melt together.

Any crusting Buttercream should be good. Try Indydebi's :) Good luck!

I've used the Viva crusting buttercream for hair/grass effect with either the grass tip or the jumbo grass tip and that holds up well.  I used canned frosting (!) for this monkey hair and it was done the night before the party .  It's hard on your wrist - or at least it's hard on mine - this monkey took me a couple of rest stops!  Good luck!

Birthday cake for my dad! Although some thought it was a bear! I can see how it could go either way - can you?  Stacked RingDings for ears!  Special thank you to chicklets0524!

Thanks jiya!  I got the idea from another CC'er.  I made this cake for my father 2 years ago.  It only LOOKS like it's for a child!  It made me laugh making it and it made all the other monkeys in my family howl!
