Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows how this look is achieved.  Can the cake be either buttercream or fondant.  Is the piping royal or fondant?  Any help would be appreciated.

I would make my piping buttercream softer than my icing just adding more of the liquid you do in your recipe.   I never, ever use royal on cakes...only on cookies.

I did a version of that look by impressing lines into buttercream. I thnk that the one in the photo is fondant with royal piped on the outside, but you could do it with buttercream on buttercream, or buttercream on fondant.
