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.

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

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.
