This cute brown pup by Lyndsay Sung of Coco Cake Land has curly buttercream fur, courtesy of one of her favourite piping techniques—the buttercream rosette! Master the rosette and you’re on your way to many curly haired, furry-faced cakes in the future.
Top tip! If you aren’t planning to serve the cake within a few hours of decorating it and you are in a warm or humid climate, note that the sugarpaste might get a touch sweaty and shiny looking. You can always frost and pipe the cake the night before, store in the fridge (preferably wrapped up to avoid absorbing any fridge smells!), and bring it out once you’re ready to set the sugarpaste pieces in place and do the final curly haired piping.
