Never done this before, what about thinned out piping gel. Put some sugar in yr hand and blow through a straw, close to the cake. let me know if this works

I've done it many times...piping gel brushed on with a paint brush. Works awesome!

Not sure I'd blow on the cake. Not trying to start a debate, just putting it out there.

yep, piping gel, then I take my smoother and literally pour the sugar on it and pull it up the sides of the cake. Just make sure you put it in a pan to catch the excess.

Yeah - it's a food safety thing - you could be blowing germs all over that cake! (I'm also a nurse)

Let me see if i understand. Do you fondant the cake completely, brush a thin layer of piping gel and then use a smoother to put on the sugar?

Its a very pretty technique. A customer was hinting that she might want a cake similar and I just wasn't sure how difficult it would be.
