Their is this WONDERFUL website floating around here that has everything, if not close to it, on clay, I know it has a section on frosting and I know that their is a thread around here somewhere on it to. I beleave it is by Diane B. it is called the, POLYMER CLAY "ENCYCLOPEDIA"
the website is glass attic, do a search on this forum and I am sure you will find it.(hope this was okay)

But there is a liquid clay you can purchase to do the frosting and you can diluted the clay to make it creamier for frosting to thats what I do, you can also use frosting tips to. I am a begginer to with clay so I use the forum and that website to pick up tips and tricks. Good luck..

Live, Love, and laugh often..

The page re making frostings & icings that was referred to below is at my site (glassattic.com), on the Miniatures page:
...click on Frostings, Icings, etc.

There are various substances to use for the frostings, but generally it's solid polymer clay thinned down with one of several oily substances.  Then it can be shaped by hand or with tools, etc., or it can be extruded through a clay gun and/or icing tips, etc.
Info on using icing tips in particular is on this page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/claygun.htm (click on Icing Tips, which is under Small & Medium Extruders)

Btw, there are also loads of previous posts here that have described various techniques for making frostings, icings, etc for polymer clay.  Just do a search for them in the Search box using the phrase frosting clay (...clay is added to keep the search mostly in the polymer clay boards instead of the food boards, etc)... or use the Advanced Search page to restrict the search to only the polymer clay boards:

Perhaps a mold?

Or maybe real cake decorations were used after warming the clay up a lot. I'm not sure. =/

I tried a real cake tip once.  Horrible mess.  Ruined the clay and the tip.

I might have just done it wrong, but boy will i never do that again.
