In my opinion it is piped in buttercream on buttercream. The pattern is layered, but generally not difficult - most of it are circles and lines. But I could be wrong...

It is very pretty, and I love the idea of doing the design on the top of the tiers, leaving the sides plain. Very different.

It does not looked piped to me in BC...because if you look at where the cakes meet...there is not "settle marks" ya know...It looks thicker than BC??? Do you all think it is done in royal????

I think there are no "settle marks" because the pattern is not piped where the next tier sits.

Could be royal or sugarveil piped ontop of a pattern then transferred. doubt it's buttercream. to smooth and shiney. sugarveil is nice as it stays pliable and doesn't shatter!

I wouldn't expect there to be 'settle' looks like the tiers are 'floating'.

It looks like piped royal to me. Sugar Veil would be a litte thinner than this. This looks more plump.

They look cut but one can pipe to the edge of something. If the icing is the right consistency(along with the aid of a dampened brush) one can pipe it like that. If it were sugarveil (and I'm just sharing observations...not arguing exactly), and it were cut, how could you get the pattern to match up exactly to the surface edge of the cake? Maybe, if the cake were frozen enough to get a template of the cake surface...(how many cakes are iced perfectly round?)...then the pattern piped onto the template of the cake surface then transferred...but one would still have to go in and pipe the dots..

I could be wrong(sure wish you could find out who made it)...I say it was marked off and piped.

Does it look like the tiers are 'floating' (the borders look like they were piped onto the side of the cake with a slight gap below opposed to the border being piped in the crook where the bottom of the upper cake meets the surface of the lower cake) I imagining it?
