Hello ! 

I have been a way for a while, and now I was asked by my sister to do her birthday cake with this kind of effect, but I can't find the name of this technique to look for tutorials on the web. 

Does anyone know how you call this kind of double buttercream layer thing?  


P.s. I don't know where this photos came from, she sent them to me, but they are not mine. Congrats to who made them because they are beautiful! :)

I donno, that almost looks like fondant with a ragged edge over buttercream.

You would certainly have more control with fondant, but I believe it would be doable with buttercream or ganache.

I had just come across it and remembered this post. She has a full tutorial on her site. I definitely would not have thought that it could be done in buttercream. They're beautiful cakes.
