So this lady saw a picture of my cake where I iced in buttercream and ecorated with fondant I had stripes on the cake and she wants the same thing on her cake but dislikes fondant. I was honest with her and told her that it could be done it just won't look as neat as fondant does and with the cake iced in buttercream people probably won't eat the fondant.
If you have done stripes like on this cake, but with buttercream and were successful please give me tips on how to please. Here's a link

ok couldn't attached the link but it is the cake in my photos on the second page the second to last.

Do you airbrush at all? I don't, but just a thought.

Or after the BC crusts you take a ruler and indent where you want the lines to be. Then take the cake icer tip to cover the indentation. ??? hope you get some good suggestion 'cause this is all I can think of at the moment...

I don't have an airbrush and I also thought of a larger basketweave tip but I wanted her to know it will not be as neat as fondant stripes.
