My son turns 10 next week and wants a Princess Bride movie party (BEST film of all time!) The requested cake, of course, is an ROUS, or rodent of unusual size. He wants chocolate cake, so I plan to make and stack cakes and then carve them into the shape of an ROUS, ganache it, and then use fondant accents for the claws and teeth, but then I'm stumped for the fur. How in the world would should I do the body? Fondant? Buttercream? If I use fondant, how do I get it to look rough and fur-like? It has to impress 10 year old boys, so I want it to look as ugly and realistic as possible!

It's not nice to hijack someone's thread. If you do a search about Pricing, you'll find tons of relevant threads with good information, you just have to read them.
AIt was a mistake and i really apologize , i am not hijacking anybody's thread i post it here by mistake and i can't erase it
AFirst of all, awesome movie! Secondly, I think I would go with buttercream and use the "grass" tip. (Wilton #233 I believe.) you can get a good ugly fur colour by mixing a bit of black food colouring into chocolate buttercream. You could even do it in a few different greyish-brown colours and make it patchy and mangy looking. But really, "Rodents of unusual size? I don't think they exist." :D
Yes I agree grass tip, then could you "smush" some down by using an abbreviated viva paper towel method...or maybe crinkling up wax paper into w loose ball and "dabbing" it spots to compress the butter cream?
