I am searching for a template for a shower cake, hoping someone can direct me. I am looking for a pregnant woman silhouette holding an umbrella. Can anyone help?
Thanks so much.

I normally try to find images from coloring books or similar since they usually don't have as many intricate sketch lines. Obviously that won't work! So here's an image I found.

I think that the easiest thing to do would be to print it and either cut it out and trace directly onto your icing or gently tap the image onto the icing with toothpicks. It's probably too intricate for either a piping gel transfer or glue gun transfer.

Glue gun transfer? What is that, haven't heard it mentioned before.

With a glue gun transfer you are basically making your own rubber stamp. Trace your image with a glue gun, directly onto the template. Let the glue dry then remove any stray whisps of glue and gently press the image onto crusted bc. Then just fill in the design with bc. If you don't want a mirror image make sure you glue gun on the back of the image not the front! I used it on a cake I made of the US recenlty to mark the state lines. It was so easy!

Oh! So simple..... its one of those why didn't I think of that things!
I've used the needle punch method forever, but this seems so much easier. Those little holes are just impossible to see sometimes.
Thanks so much, can't wait to try this!

I definetely think I found it on CC. I had the same response, so smart!!! I couldn't believe how easy it was on my US cake (still need to post pics). It was the only thing about that cake that worked exactly the way it was supposed to!

I think Jennifer Dontz might have a cutter. I'm not sure if it has an umbrella. I'll look.

Yep, one with and one without. They are about $18.00, but so cute. Oh, I love that website and wish I had a spare $1,000.00 or so just lying around. Yeah, right!!!
