I have been given a picture of a Martha Stewart Cake and wonder how this is done. I have looked on Martha Stewarts website but can not find it. Can anyone help please?

but the shading on each 'box' makes 'em look like they are not flat but bevled, 3-d ish
beveled perfectly i might add
then you look at the profile of the cake and you see it is all smooth
tremendous optical illusion--really a stunner cake
I think it can be done with a cutter similar to this one. I think it is all in the arrangement or the chevron pattern and the 3D look is an illusion. Maybe done with pearl dust shading.
It is very pretty. Does the book not give any ideas or hints on how it is done?
It could be piped, but the top row of chevrons on each tier rise above the top edge of the cake so I'm guessing fondant. If piped it would require an incredibly steady hand and a perfect consistency icing. I know I couldn't do it.
