I have been asked to do a 50 anniversary cake. They want it to replicate the original wedding cake. From what I can tell by the photo it looks like the cakes that the icing is just put on and not smoothed out. Almost like spackle but I cant find that when seaching for it.

I am not sure how else to expain it. I know it is done with a big spatula and the icing is find of pulled away and fluffy.

Does this ring a bell to anyone? I want to show them the cake I have in mind and see if it is close to the cake the want.

I think the term is "rough iced" or "spatula iced". There are lots of pictures listed like that in the wedding cake galleries.

You might try searching the galleries for rough iced and see if that brings up the style you're looking for.

It sounds like what is called "rustic" icing. I hope that helps!

This is a cake I made a good while back that is rough-iced....but it may be a little "flatter" than what you want....but an idea!
