This cake was made for a friend of mine. Can someone please tell me what technique is used on this cake. I don’t understand how the icing inside is so smooth and how to get it that way. This cake is all buttercream icing and no fondant. This cake was awesome but would I love know how this person does this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I am wondering if they applied the buttercream base then refridgerated it than rolled it lightly..I am sure someone very much more skilled can answer this. Sorry
My first thought is it was airbrushed but looking a little closer there is a shadow around part of the figure so I think it is raised a little. It could have been done with the color flow method.
Look up buttercream transfer. The same effect can be achieved using white chocolate/candy melts.

Looks like it was just piped on then smoothed out with a small offset spatula. If you don't have much experience doing that, just do the transfer, it'll probably be easier.
