Looks to me like it is piped on. I can't get it big enough and clear enough to tell much more. The top looks like maybe a drop flower tip but made to stand out, not against the cake, the bottom I can't tell. More like lots of random swirls/piles of icing from a round tip. Just my guess though.
I tried enlarging the image, too. I've asked the customer for the original link to the photo. We'll see if that helps. Thanks for your reply!
I agree it looks to be piped on instead of fondant. Good Luck :)
If you do a googel image search with the picture you can find one that's a tiny bit bigger.
the top is covered in cut-out fondant flowers, and the bottom is tiny fondant ruffles. You could pipe buttercream to get a similar effect on the bottom.
That is good to know -- I didn't know you could search for an image on Google. That will save me a whole lot of time in the future. Thank You!
The ball looks like it is flowers, but the bottom is too small to see!
