From what I can see it looks like butter cream with dark brown painting to appear as a tree.............like a white birch tree?

It looks like white buttercream with either brown painting or chocolate. I would probably paint with brown. For the edges where the "wrapped" look is I would rough up the buttercream and paint the leading edge.
