I know with chocolate ganache, the way I have done it in the past is take a spoon and dribble it in different amounts around the edge of the cake. Don't know if that makes any sense, or if that is even what you are looking for.

I would lay the icing fondant over the top and smooth down the side just as far down as you want your icing to drip and then cut drips all around the cake with anxacto knife, remove the excess fondant and smooth the edges .

If you want to do this on a butter cream frosted cake make sure you chill your cake at least a few hours if not overnight, if the buttercream is'nt really really cold and hard the fondant will pull it off the cake.

If it's on a fondant cake then you should me be fine just chilling it until it's hard.
I like to work with cold hard cakes,cuts down on finger prints and smudges.

Hope that makes sense.
