Well it's going to take lots of workicon_sad.gif
1st yu have to get the verious colors of choco you want; temper/melt it.
Next you need a strip of ascetate(sp??) that is wider than the cake is high and longer than it is around.
Spread the melted choco on w/a spatula. Working as quickly as y ou can spread each color/stripe making sure each one overlaps the other slightly. Let it set up (in frig is o.k.) until it is solid but still flexable. Wrap around the cake & peel off the ascetate.
There is at least one co that sells them ready to use but I can't remember the name....

What kakeladi described is a chocolate tranfer using melted chocolate. I believe the picture and what the OP is describing is a stripe on modeling chocolate. There's a member at that does these amazingly well. They haven't shared their secret, though. I can't remember their name, but if I run across them, I'll let you know.

Good job, Rea! You found the guy I was talking about. Rouvelee's cake is fondant. The link is the website for the flickr account in your third link. At one point in time he commented that he'd share his technique when he had it totally mastered (looks like he does, eh?) but he's pretty tight lipped these days on his technique. We'd all love to know how he does it. It's striking!
