it looks like it was done with a spatula...why not try it out on a dummy cake. I use a styrofome round to practice my decorating and covering. Get one and try it out. Or u could use wax or parchment paper. Whatever floats ur boat. Good Luck and could u maybe help me my post it the one about ganache and strawberrys.

put the cake on a turntable and the spatula on the cake, then turn and pull your spatula towards the center while turning the cake on the turntable. Takes a little practice to get it nice and even like they have it, but it's a fairly simple process.
