It looks to me like fondant rope that's been wound around itself. Not totally sure though, but that's what I'd do!

yeah it sure does look like that.  and what a cake it is, although it's from 2009 I sure hope this decorator is out there making more gorgeous cakes.:grin:

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
