How do you achieve the look of these cakes? Example one part of the cake is white and the other is purple. How do you get them to meet so perfectly?

Here is a newly uploaded cake:

I've done it and it's just as it looks....you lay different color fondants on the sides. You can overlap them slightly to give you some leeway for matching up the fondant edges. Then you can put a decorative element over the overlap to cover it up. I'll try to upload the dummy cake I covered this way.

She states in the description that she airbrushed the other side of the cake purple. Then airbrushed purple stencils too. She didnt match two different fondants.

I've done with fondant (which is easier) and also with buttercream.

With buttercream, you need to use wax paper to cover the other part that has already been iced with a different color, when icing another color next to it.
