I really want to know how they got the swirled effect on top of this log cake. I was thinking modeling chocolate and then taking a tool and making the lines and then "painting" it with melted milk chocolate.. Other then this idea I am at a loss any help would be awesome!!!
Maybe it's buttercream with cocoa dragged through it with a cake comb?
I think it is buttercream with cocoa dragged through it too, but I am guessing a fork was used to pull it through the icing in a circle while rotating the turn table
Thank you all so much! This is the finished product!!! I ending up using white mopening chocolate and cocoa powder. The customer wanted chocolate buttercream :) sorry it's sideways
Here's a better picture!
