I am looking for some photos of cakes (iced in buttercream) in which the sides look as if they were "combed". I know there are tools out there to create this effect, but I'm just not certain what this technique is called. Any help is appreciated!
My Pink/Brown sheet cake has combed sides.
I got the tool at La Sur Table.
Wilton has a plastic tool at any roberts/joanns/michales store.
yes (Wilton tool) the triangle pastry scraper with each side have different width grooves. It is an Icing Comb or Icing Scraper
Make sure you have a nice thick layer of buttercream or you will scrape down to your cake! I have the Wilton one and it works well enough.
