It reminds me of the old spatula 'petals' the ladies used to do back in the 1950s. Do you think it could be made by 'rocking' a spatula in columns?

I love it too.....what about using the back of a teaspoon and alternating from one side to the other?

Looks to me like an impression mat, but I would like to know for sure.

I wish I could find who did this cake so I could ask. I think the cake is so cool.

large petal tip piped in a swag fashion?

I think its done with the back of a spoon, almost zig-zagging from top to bottom. I'll try this technique this weekend and let you know!

Looks like a spoon or spatula "swag" to me.

Ok. I tried it with the back of the spoon. It came out good, but I am sure with some more practice it could be better. Sorry the pictures are in reverse order. Didn't realize that was the order they were being posted:

Yes! I think you've got it! Is that regular buttercream?

The original looks like it may be a meringue based icing that will give a more glossy and 'rounded' Austrian curtain style ruffle.

I used bettercreme for the cake. I thought a whipped icing would be easier to swirl- and it is. I think I might have made the bettercreme a little to stiff. But I think it still came out ok. I figure smbc would probably work good too with a warm spoon.

It really looks nice. I like to see something other than a smooth side for a change.

I would save myself all that work and get a 127 tip and pipe it on.

actually, the whole cake only took about 10 minutes! The sides I mean.
