What is this technique?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have seen this before, and it appears simple, but could be deceiving!  I'm referring to what I can only think of as "scalloped" sides?  Do you just plop blobs of frosting in vertical rows and smooth them with a spatula?

 

Thanks for your help! :)

I like the look, but haven't tried it yet.  However, it looks fairly straightforward.

It's simple AND beautiful.  I've used it many times myself (even my cake logo here)

It's called the petal effect - check out Melissa's super simple wonderfully described plan!
