great looking cake, if you don't mind me asking, is it piping you did around the cake?

Thank you. No this is not piping. To get this look you frost your cake as usual. It does not have to be smooth. you then use a tapered spatula and starting at the bottom you spin the cake on the turntable and work your way up. For the top of the cake you start on the outer edge of the cake you spin the turntable and work your way to the center. Quite simple and not time consuming and you get this lovely rustic look. Hope this helps.

Thank- you for taking the time to responds, really love the effect. I have seen this on some cakes but always wanted to know how to do this.

Really Lovely---The icing seems shiny though (love it) did you put something in it or on it or.........?

Nothing added to it. At room temperature this is how my Swiss buttercream looks.

Which craftsy class did you learn how to do the ruffles in?

11/04/2012 Flag

It wasn't a Craftsy class. I explained how I got the effect below.
