January and February are busy consultation months. This cake had been the #1 most popular design thus far for 2011.
I call this style, "Messy Butercream". It's simple. Elegant. Soft and beautiful. If you want a buttercream cake, I would suggest doing something like this instead of the smooth finish that looks like fondant. If you are not going to use fondant for your cake.. you might as well make it look completely different. Plus, it adds a beautiful texture as well as gives a modern twist to a traditional style of cake.
