AI have been asked to make this cake but not sure how to put the white icing like the picture. I've looked on YouTube because I am a visual person. If you could help me with how to put white buttercream over the blue like the picture would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

AI believe that the white part is fondant? I'm on my phone so I can't really see. You would just roll out fondant...use a pizza cutter Or exacto knife to make those wavy edges and lay it over the top

AIs there some reason you have HAVE to do it like the picture? Fondant would be the most efficient way to do it in my opinion.

You would need a crusting buttercream to do this. Put some in an icing bag and snip the end off. First I would do the outline on the edges, the wavy bit (you could mark the fondant first if you need a line to follow). Then fill the sides in and do the top. Using an icing bag with a small opening will ensure you have pretty much the same thickness of icing. Wait for it to crust then go over it with either paper towel and a smoother, or a clean (and never used for paint) foam roller. You could actually add bigger blobs of icing in some places if you specifically want lumps and bumps in it.

AThank you. What size tip would you use if you are talking a small tip? I use the viva paper towel method all the time

I suggest using a tip around 7 or 9 - something like that.  It depends on how much pressure you have when piping.  I know many times I'd see someone's work and think they used a much smaller tip than they did because they don't have the pressure I did. 

I worked mostly in b'cream so to me it would not be all that hard to recreate something like this in all b'cream :)

Cover the sides of the cake w/blue icing, then ice the top.  You can do that w/a spatula or pipe blobs and smooth them as much or little as you want.  Let the white icing fall over the top edge and fill in with piping.  Again, smooth w/spatula &'/or paper towel.
