I have made Rose’s Mousseline on a few occassions and have decided that this is all my customers will get from hence forth.  My question is this:  will it hold up to being piped as grass with a grass tip?  I am creating a Hula Girl this week and really don’t want to use “Deocrator’s Buttercream” for the grass skirt.  The flowers will be fondant; the under cake will be “sand” (buttercream mixed with graham cracker crumbs or cake crumbs whichever comes first).  So what do you think?  How about it Bill?

I am looking forward to hearing what the replies will be for this thread! I am sorry I cannot add anything useful for you, I have never made a mousseline! I cannot wait to try though, after all these rantings! I can’t wait to see a pic of your hula girl cake! Best of luck!

Hi Cyndy, I think mousseline should hold up. I’ve never piped it as grass but I’ve piped it as basketweave twice and it turned out well. The mousseline I made was lemon curd mousseline and the cake was left at room temperature (65-70 degrees) for 5 hours and it hold. The picture of the cake is on my avatar.
I hope you’ll post pic, I’d love to see the cake, I’m sure it’ll be fabulous.

Yes, it will hold up if it’s not too hot where you are. Even still, keep the cake chilled after decorating and it will be fine. I use mousseline as much as I can. The only time I don’t use it is when I have a request for a sweeter icing or when the weather here gets too humid to pipe my mousseline roses, then I use Wilton’s recipe.

I’ve done all kinds of piping with the IMBC and you can do grass but it has to be on the cool side or the grass sortof melts together. So keep a cold pack handy on the counter for your hands and IMBC. You might have to chill the cake in between or if the grass tip icing gets runny, use a #2 in between.

AHHHHHHHHHHH!  I’m sorry I didn’t respond sooner…I’ve been a bit crazed and haven’t been on the blog much.  I’ve never piped it as grass…but…next to decorators buttercream, mousseline would be the next most stable.  I have never ever ever had a problem.  I’ve piped it in many shapes, and it always holds just fine at room temperature.  Again…sorry for the delay.  Hope it all turned out well.!
