I have to make a cake in May for a friend and she wanted silhouettes around the cake of a karate guy doing an in-air kick. Has anyone seen this before or know where to buy a cutter from? I've searched the internet with no luck. I've seen cakes that have the silhouettes on them but not sure how they did them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Google karate silhouette. Print them off and do the pin prick method on black fondant. Then cut out with an exacto knife. (If you can't find cutters)

I did this one that way:

Oh, and if you do it the way I suggested, be sure to make a couple extra. I started out with five and two were sacrificed to the cake gods. thumbsdown.gif

you could also color some melted chocolate to be black and use a transparency to pipe the chocolate onto over your image and then peel them off. just like jammjenks said, you have to make a couple extra of these too :p

Thanks! I had thought about that as well. I've printed them out just in case I can't find a cutter. Thanks for the help!
@ April, your cake looks great!

I did that with my Michael Jackson cake in my photos. I found the picture I wanted and cut the shape out. I laid the paper on top of my rolled fondant and used my exacto knife to cut the shape.
