ASince your friend replied that she isn't using fondant, then my guess would be buttercream. Looks like she just rounded the edges. You can do that with viva paper towels.

AThe cakes look like they were airbrushed green and blue. It doesn't look like the icing was colored before applied to the cake.

AThere is no way to tell what kind of buttercream she used. But any kind of buttercream will have that same look if you ice it with a rounded curve at the top.

It looks like the cake was iced with white icing and then the cake was airbrushed. The color doesn't seem to be evenly done - like it would be if the icing itself was colored.

.........what kind of buttercream she used?...........


Looks to me like it could be rolled buttercream.  Otherwise, it probably is a very smooth ABC that has been airbbrushed to make it shiny like that.
