I have been browsing through some cake pictures and noticed that a lot are done with the run-in sugar method, I am just hoping that someone could explain to me this method and give me some pointers on how to do it, as I would love to try it myself. I am quite new to cake decorating and am always looking for new ideas and things to try....any pointers would help or links to pages that can help me would be great too.
If you are talking about the glaze method the best person to ask is Kathy Finholt. You can get her email from her website kathyskakesllc.com
Run-in method is also commonly called color flow. You can use royal icing and outline your design. Then thin the icing a bit with water and flood the piece. Hope this helps.
I love color flow, it hardens nicely so items can be made ahead without too much damage, but will soften after a bit when put on buttercream.

The glaze method is done the same way as color flow but does not dry hard. I will crust over and can be painted using an artist brush.
Color flow is one of my favorite ways to decorate! It's so easy to take almost anything and create an exact replica! It's super easy to learn, so have fun!
Thank you all so much for the help, I can not wait to try this!!!!
