How do you do the frosting pattern on this cake?  I tried using a large flat tip and it looked terrible. Please help.

Apply a slightly heavier/thicker coat of b’cream then use the back of a spoon to go around the cake.   Might also try using a small off set spatula

just put cake on turntable, touch spoon to cake firmly but lightly & spin turntable—- not too fast.

You can use a cake comb, which will achieve what you want in one go. The trouble with the spoon, is keeping perfectly steady in one spot. And getting spaced evenly in between. There are several wide ones on Amazon.  https://www.amazon.com/cake-comb-Home-Kitchen/s?k=cake+comb&rh=n%3A1055398

I recently made this cake using the comb pictured that I bought from Amazon.  It worked perfectly.  I tried several techniques beforehand (spoon, spatula, various kitchen utensils) but this worked beautifully and quickly.  It does create a more uniform pattern, and if a rustic irregular pattern is desired, then the spoon or spatula technique would be the best.  HTH
