Thanks you all!!!! A trick I've found to smooth Buttercream is to use the fondant smoother with the paper towel rather than my hand. I call the fondant smoother my cake iron since it resembles an iron.

This is the exact look that I have been trying to achieve with the paper towel method. Did you use the easy glide fondant smoother only? How did you smooth the edges? I have a wedding cake to do on the 22nd & want this effect!

Leisa97~A few minutes after icing is on the cake (not too long) test a small area by laying Viva paper towel on icing and gently rub it with your hand. Immediately remove paper towel. If it pulls icing - it's not ready, if it doesn't - it's ready. When ready, lay p/t on cake and start "ironing" it with the Easy-Glide Fondant Smoother. Start on top. When working on the sides, gently pull paper towel up and barely over edge and start smoothing it. When edge is done, straighten the sides. Good luck!
