Are you sure that's fondant? It looks like buttercream that's been smoothed.

That looks like bc, but it also looks like the colors were painted on - not airbrused - after it was done. icon_confused.gif

i would guess that it is buttercream and that it was applied using the wide, flat icing tip with a different color in each bag. Smoothed with a bench scraper. it looks like it was also wet-smoothed.
