love this texture, how to replicate

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My daughter found this picture of a cake she likes and I am not sure how to replicate the frosting technique used. Any ideas? I will attempt to attach it but in all the years I have been on here, I have never been able to figure that one out.


Here is a link I think lol

Wow, I was finally able to post a picture.. lol...Anyway does anyone have any ideas for doing this technique? I was thinking if I used my spatula to just touch and pull all around.. it will take a while but thought it might get that look. I appreciate any ideas. Thanks

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Here's a candle cake that was inspired by VaBelle of CC. The rough texture on the side was done by "touch and pull" on my buttercream BEFORE it crusted.

It is not a frosting technique, it's a piping technique much like Sotas:

Extra icing was frosted onto the cake to build it up thicker than the piping gel, then lines were piped over that with heavy pressure from a writing tip for a random squiggly texture.

Here is how it turned out. I think it looks pretty good for a first try. Thanks again for all your help
