TIA

my guess - embossed with a little wheel tool

then piping gel mixed with silver luster dust roughly piped on to follow the embossing.

I have no clue but Doug's idea sounds good...I LOVE those flowers and the color of the cake..it's really pretty.

I was thinking along the same line as Doug. The lines look like they're indented into, not lying on top of, the fondant. I saw Mary Maher do a similar thing once on Amazing Wedding Cakes. She just took a fondant veining tool and made lines all over the fondant. This cake looks like they then filled them in with luster dust.

My thought is dresden tool and hand painted silver luster dust or even disco dust mixed w/ vodka and hand painted.

I like Doug's idea and I love the cake. The flowers are beautiful and I also like the color.

I think if I were to try to do this, I would take some dental floss, wrap it around the cake like a ribbon, and pull tight so it would make an indent. Then, I'd pipe sparkle piping gel along the lines that were made.

BTW... did you find that cake here on CC, or maybe flickr? I'd love to add it to my favorites.

Definitely looks like piping gel with luster dust and/or disco dust, which is a larger grain and glittery. I actually have some of this in a piping bag in my kitchen icon_smile.gif - the lines look indented and filled in with the glittery piping gel. Have fun!
