"Perhaps the most classic of cake finishes, buttercream always looks (and tastes) luscious. Here, Ohio baker and Weddings contributing editor Wendy Kromer covered each tier of the cake in Swiss meringue buttercream, then created a repeated flourish with a petal tip, which gives the cake a modern style. Half-circles traced on each tier provided a guide for piping the fan shapes, done in plain and pink-tinted buttercream. This design relies on a single pastry tip, but because bakers have a large assortment from which to choose, piping can achieve a wide range of effects. Cake by Wendy Kromer and Avery Wittkamp."

Buttercream. Probably one of the rose petal tips, but I wouldn't begin to know what size.

The cake was created for MSW and I posted the description of the cake. It's SMBC and a petal tip.
