Wedding 3 Tiered Cupcake Cake

I’ve been given this image as design inspiration but can’t work out how the ‘wrapper ’ has been created, does anyone have any ideas? Also the frosting looks really smooth, I don’t think it’s buttercream – any advice appreciated!

I would approach it this way. I would taper the tiers and use modelling chocolate for the wrapper. I would roll “snakes” to get the ridges then wrap it. The benefit of modelling chocolate is it doesn’t dry as quick as fondant so you can work on the smoothing longer and you’d be able to smooth the seam. You could use fondant on the swirl. That’s how I iced the cake in this link http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2250607/giant-cupcake. Jessicakes has a tutorial for the wrapper here http://jessicakesblog.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/giant-cupcake-tutorial.html

Thanks so much Lisapeps, I was part way there but your idea of using modelling chocolate is great.

I may be way off, but the ladies at pinkcake box are usually very helpful – what with their tutorials and how-to’s. They may tell you what they did if you contact them.
