Hello,

i saw the attached picture on pinterest and it linked back to cake central but only the image. I was wondering is this just pure fondant? Seems like the pink part is slightly textured and the white is a bit shiny. Also is the candle just fondant as well? If anyone can assist me with it or has a tutorial for a similar idea please help!

That's an Andrea Sullivan style design...

The pink section looks like buttercream, the texture looks natural, meaning nothing was done to it besides smoothing....the white drippy part looks like fondant.

 

Here's a video she posted showing how to make her signature candle:

thank you so much! the video is super informative and fun! 

 

Getting buttercream that smooth scares me! But it looked like buttercream to me as well...Problem is I wish I could get more details on it like size, height etc. Seems like an easy cake in theory but it's scaring me to try

You're welcome...

 

The decorator posted that it's a smash cake so I imagine the layers were pretty small...but that design could be sized up easily, if needed...

 

You could always try PMing her for more info, though I notice she hasn't been active here in almost a year.
