I have decorated cupcakes with buttercream before.
How do I get a smooth icing on the cupcake as in the following:

I wasn't sure if this was poured icing or fondant or buttercream. If poured icing.....does it taste just as good as buttercream?

This was posted by Shevi. I have asked her as well. Thanks a lot!

That looks like some kind of poured icing to me. Hopefully someone can tell you what it is...I am curious, too.

I've iced smooth with buttercream before. I just use the same smoothing technique I use on a regular cake. Time consuming, but it works.

Hi Guys... thank you all for your lovely comments. I used Fondant. Made the flowers, Letters and numbers a day in advance, so that they dry hard. Cut circles out of fondant to cover the cake and then added the final touches. Glad you all like it.
