I normally find a picture i like over the internet print it out and then use it as a templet. I use poster board to trace my templet onto the fondant.

I would do a frozen butter cream transfer. They are super easy to do. you can Google it to get complete how-to steps. If you want a template instead, I normally print it out on regular paper then cut it out of wax paper & use it as my template. Then you don't have to worry about ink. HTH!

I made one by blowing up a picture I found on the internet and using that for a template to carve the cake.. I used a half sheet cake, but I've also done it with a quarter sheet cake. Here's the link: http://cakes.dqd.com/Birthdays_web/images/Playboy%20bunny.jpg
