AHello again,

So my friend is getting married in August and the cake below is the only cake her fiancé and her can agree on. She has asked me to make it for her and it's definately not my 1st wedding cake but I have no idea how to get this look.

It will be 3 tier to feed 125 people so it's on the smaller side. But normally I make wedding cakes and cover them in fondant. Is this fondant or buttercream? If it's buttercream.... Is it usual American buttercream or a Swiss merengue buttercream? If someone could give me any pointers or instructions on how to achieve this look I would be so grateful! I just don't know if it's painted on with dust or what? I'm so lost on this cake, help ?!?!?

Thanks in advance!

There's a 2-hour Kaysie Lackey class for sale that teaches this design:
