I was wondering what technique this is.

That looks like the Royal icing technique someone posted step by step how to do it. Search through the posts and you will find it. Sorry I can't be of more help
Looks like fondant to me. Perhaps even marzipan or gumpaste. Doesn't really look like the texture of royal icing, plus it has been grooved/lined in areas.
If you click on her username, it bring up her profile/website info. Click on the website and she has lots of cakes done with this method too.
It seems very similar to patchwork cutters.
Just print out a picture, make cutouts and and just layer it/put it together.
Rylan My name is Kerri just wanted to introduce myself. So it is my assumption that I would take the picture that I wanted and then cut out pieces of fondant or gumpaste and just layer until all is covered this makes sense and seems like it would be farely easy. I am going to try with a sheet cake I have ordered for a 1st birthday they want the sesame street gang they gave me a page from a coloring book so I can just make a few copies of that and just cut out my pieces. I will post results when finished I may start making it soon I think I will make out of gumpaste and make a plaque out of it so they can have a keepsake.
thanks for everyone's help I just love it here. I AM ADDICTIDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
