I did one sim. to this.  I frosted the cake primary color. Then took a 1 " scraper and scraped teh stripes while turning the turntable.  I used a pastry bag filled with stripe color with flat tip as close as I could fing to stripe size,  I filled stripes then when buttercream was crusted, I used a viva paper towel and a fondant smoother to make the surface flat.  Hope this helps!  GL

My suggestion would be to ice the cake in white crusting b'cream - let it set up until you can touch it w/o any icing coming off on your finger, then place wax paper or maybe a paper towel over the places you want to remain white while adding the red icing using a quick icer OR just spatula it on and smooth.  After it has crusted, remove the paper, then you can use a paper towel to completely smooth the whole cake.
