What effect are you referring too?
If it were me, I would probably do the cake in BC and then pipe those lines on there, in fact i would probably do the same with fondant, just pipe the lines in BC.

I tend to agree...I think they are piped on. Is that what you were referring to as technique?

If they're fondant, its easy actually.

They used a clay extruder , probably on the smallest setting, and then placed them carefully and evenly on the cake.
