I am making a Muppet cake for my son's 4th birthday.  I'm thinking about this cake:, but adapted to his favorite characters, because I can do it in advance because his birthday is December 31st and that time of year is crazy to plan a party. :(  I've made a cake similar for someone else, but it was princess themed letters. question is how would you ice it for a boy's cake.  To me, personally, the ruffles are too girly and the husband isn't really feeling it.  If I kept it simple and white, how would you ice it?  Petal style, rustic, simple and smooth?  I was also thinking about doing white with maybe "paint splatter" with the colors of the party.  Thoughts?  Thanks! :)

I would do smooth or lines, either horizontally or vertically.

Thanks for the reply! :)  I very much appreciate it.  This is the cake I was talking about in the original post that I have done before.  She wanted it smooth.  I kind of just wanted to do something different, I guess, but I want something that will still look good with a design similar to this.

I just searched buttercream texture and got a few different options.

Any of these techniques Costumeczar shows in her video: 

My personal favourite is the one where you drag the spatula horizontally around the cake, I would do that one.

Thanks, sleaky77!  I had fun making that for her.  I have two boys, so it's fun to do something girly here and there. ;)  Dayti, that's for the link. That is a super helpful tutorial!!  I have watched it a few times for two different cakes where I did two of the methods she demonstrates, including the one you're talking about.  I highly recommend it to anyone else.  You're right, Dayti, that is a pretty method. :)
