How is the body of the monster done? What tip used? Can I use swiss meringue buttercream with it??? Or just american buttercream? A neighbour asked as a favor and since I mostly work with fondant have no idea how to achieve the monster body?
Can't see the cake, do you have another link?
The picture is a little blurry, but it looks like it's either the grass tip or Wilton size 21 (give or take a size up or down depending on the size of the fur fluff you want). You can do this in American Buttercream (I have made it before). I don't use SMBC much, so I can't speak toward that.
Yeah, I think it's a grass tip too. You can do it with SMBC or IMBC as long as it's not too soft (warm). If you want the fur to stand up more, use ABC.
I would start at the bottom working up to the top since it's shaggy.

This "grass" is long, like what you;re going for.
