They want the cake to be buttercream, with no fondant!

Thankful for any advice!

I would cover the cake in mousseline. It holds it's shape beautifully, firms up nicely in the refrig so that you have a firm base for painting (I have no problem stenciling on it) and it doesn't need to be refrigerated (it can stay at room temp for 2 days). After you frost it and spread a bit of extension where it would appear to be the edge of the birch bark as it begins to curl up. Pop it into the fridg for 30 min or so to firm up. Then you can paint the birch bark markings on the mousseline. It's a beautiful cake and you will do a beautiful job.

I paint on BC all the time! All you need to do is chill the cake and get the BC nice and firm, and brush lightly!

Practice, practice, practiceicon_smile.gif
Get out your b'cream and spread it about 1/4" to 1/3" thick on a board - making it as smooth as you need/want; fz for about 20-30 minutes.
Have your stencil ready and place it lightly on the board. Using food colors (easiest it use are airbrush liquids, but you can thin gel colors w/something like vodka) and art brushes paint away. Use a light touch. If you have trouble w/the stencil sticking, pulling the b'cream when you take it off put a piece of netting/organza material under it (between the icing & stencil).
If you don't want to use a stencil, just very lightly toothpick lines of what you want to paint and go for it. Don't load up the brush w/lots of paint/color - light touches are best. You can always go over it later if you want it darker etc.
