Hi. 

 

I'm going to make a cake like this in the outside (with cream cheese) for a bride to be. (She wanted it and as a friend I couldn't say no xD)

 

But, I have no idea how it is done or how it is called!! :( 

Can someone tell me how do you call this technique in english? If I find the name of the technique I can search for tutorials x) 
I am not talking about the ombré effect of the colors. I'm really talking about the frosting. 

Thank you!!

Ombre!

 

Okay, I jumped the gun and didn't finish reading. I'm not sure if it has a name, but you just press the tip of your cake spatula or a spoon horizontally on the cake.

look for youtube of ombre buttercream ruffles.  I just did.  while this doesn't look so 'ruffle-y' that's where you'll find the technique.  good luck

Hello!  I did a tutorial featured here for CC:

I'm assuming you need help with the cake part, not the icing?

No, she said she needs help with the frosting. I'm assuming the effect it has on it..

OOPS!  I missed that last sentence.  Yes, that you tube vid is all you need, except don't make your colors so bright.  It's one of the easiest techniques to do!

 

Good luck,
