Hi all, i wanted to finish elmo, the cut out came out really nice the eyes are going to be really big because of how tall the cake is and that's ok Problem elmo is not very furry so i tried the large grass tip on the sides started falling off. so i changed to the small one, and just started the top  i'm just squiggeling it around looks good, was looking good on the side but started  falling  off tried to start from the bottom then the top not good. i can't do the sides unless i have someone tilt the cake and that won't work out well so now what, would it look bad if i used the border tip and just go up and down,  will the 3 flower tip work i really need some suggestions. Thank you

Did you put a layer of icing on the sides of the cake before you used the grass tip?  Helps the icing adhere. Otherwise, you can use a different tip for the sides, it's the face that's noticeable.
