This little cake had a buttercream finish with a design dragged into it using a paintbrush. Here's how to do it...Ice the cake, smooth it out respectably but not necessarily 100% smooth. Take a damp paintbrush and paint a design into it. Annnnnnd...you're done. Just make sure to use a good-quality paintbrush with stiff bristles or you'll run the risk of having the paintbrush bristles fall out, which doesn't enhance the flavor of the cake.
I also put some extra flowers and some butterflies on it. The butterflies were wafer paper on gumpaste. Click here for the video about that:
