I have never heard of this. Are you trying for a smooth icing of the cake or a textured icing?

That's the look they used to give the cakes on the cake mix and pre-made frosting commercials, way back in the day. I never knew what it was called.

I was wondering how they did it, but I think, on TV, they used a knife or small spatula.

I love that look. It always reminded me of clouds.

Thanks for posting this!

It's how my mother and those of that generation used to frost a cake.

icer101 Posted 5 Mar 2009 , 7:44pm

somebody showed that the other day on here.. you take the back of your spoon .. start at base of cake and move it up to top edge.. move over a little... do the same thing , all around the cake.. then go across the top with back of spoon. some bride wanted this look. i don,t know where to tell you to look, i guess under , how do it.. hth

2txmedics Posted 5 Mar 2009 , 7:47pm

are you talking about making swirls?....if so I do mine with my icing knife...just wet the cake with a couple of sprays from my mister..to keep icing smooth and soft..then I lef it dry...also you will notice the imprinting on my cake that is the paper towel method.

If you use boiled icing then you can really get the swirls going!
I know with meringue my mom uses a knife to get the cutesy peaks on her lemon meringue pie.
