This cake tested me. She showed me a pic of what she wanted but didn't want the fondant. After a LOT of research I decided not to try to copy the picture exactly and just get the jist of it. Anyone that decorates knows how hard whipped frosting is to work with since it is so soft. When it was finished, I was happy with the end product. I ended up going with a swishing motion all the way around. I think I was happiest with how smooth the top of it turned out. A plus of working with the whipped frosting!! I didn't even need my trusty paint roller to smooth it!
