Correct me if I am wrong, but does this look like a spatula was pulled up on the sides to get this look?? An individual gave me this picture to have her cake match it. Thanks in advance!

I think that you can use a spatula or a butter knife to make this look. I would take the knife and just pull it straight up, continue until you are sone with the whole cake. Hope this helps.

There was a thread about texture yesterday you might look for that. I think you are right about using a spatula.

If I made this cake it would look like I just couldn't get my icing smooth, but here it looks artistic - go figure.

Yep straight up with the spatula, I did one last year like that. Felt weird. The picture isn't the greatest it's the 1st page 2nd row.
