My dd and I are making a cake for my other dd's music magazine party in june and she wants us to do a small replica of the Nashville skyline or something similar. Anyone ever done anything like this? I am thinking of maybe some stacked cakes on a sheetcake. any help will be appreciated. TIA

This is just an idea....Have you thought about doing a stacked cake and then making the skyline out of pastillage? Or even hand painting them on the tiers? I have seen cakes done like this with the pastillage and they look really nice. JMO! icon_smile.gif

Hmmmm - i think it is Indydeb who has donE a skline cake.
From memory it was a white cake and the skyline was done in black - looked impressive.

I just *googled - images* of (skulie cakes and there are PAGES to look at.

I made my skyline out of chocolate .... melted and poured chocolate into an 18x26 baking sheet, then using paper templates, cut out the building sillouettes.

The only caution is delivery .... don't let the sun shine in thru the delivery vehicle windows!!! bad. very bad. very very. icon_cry.gif
