After fighting with fondant I have decided to listen to another CC'ers advice and try and make a textured butter cream cake. Something like this, I have an idea of how she got that lovely texture to the buttercream just not sure. So i am wondering if anyone has done this before and how you did it. I have looked online to see if I can find the answer and have come up with zip. Thanks for any help you can give me icon_smile.gif

from the cake's creator:

"The texture was difficult to get just right but I found a small spatula, silicone that is the shape of a spade and it worked wonders!"

usually, the effect is created icing the cake in a thick coat of buttercream then taking a small spatula or using the back of a spoon and swirling the buttercream on the cake until you reach the desired effect. there is no 'proper' way of doing it. hth!

Actually yeah it does, it confirms on the way I was thinking I would have to go about doing it. Just wanted to know if there was an actual technical process of doing it. Thanks

That's actually how we used to frost cakes before we found out how to smooth them. Just use the back of a spoon.
