I just been given this photo by a bride who wants me to create this cake for her wedding. It's done in buttercream. How does one achieve this nest-like texture? Is it just randomly piped on? (then maybe slightly pressed down after it's crusted a bit?) Looks so randomly perfect. Anyone done a cake like this before? Any pointers?

Wow. That's crazy that the exact photo has another on here stumped. I didn't find that thread in all my searching. I'm still stumped but will just have to experiment I guess.
