How to frost a cake with Butter cream Icing to look like a fondant?

Using Viva paper towel is the answer.  Why Viva paper towel? It’s the only paper towel with smooth surface (that I’ve known of).

I learned this trick from my Wilton decorating class, the whole class was mesmerized: the {best} trick ever.  Too bad I can’t do it with Whipped cream icing.
