Hey everyone, I am doing a *** and the city themed cake. I am new to the decorating can someone give me some ideas on how to do the skyline or a template. I was planning on cutting it out on fondant and sticking it to the cake!
CC blocks that word. I gather you are talking about the tv show with Sarah Jessica Parker as a writer and fashionista.
liv hansen does one with chocolate.
here is a sample someone made from her book
Thanks so much!
I just did a NYC skyline (actually waiting on customer to pick it up right now). I found a silhoutte I liked online, then sized the image (for me, I did 4.05" height), printed it onto card stock in 2 sections, lined the sections back up and taped them together. Cut out very carefully.
-Put the template on fondant, used a little shortening to get it to stay in place.
- Cut out with exacto knife, leave template on fondant for now
- Carefully flip oaver fondant, with template still attached and pipe a little piping gel or buttercream on the back
- Line the cutout up on the cake and adhere.
- Gently remove template.
- Repeat until all the way around
Leaving the template attached helps to keep the cutout from streching or tearing when applying it to the cake.
Thanks!! This will be the second cake I am making so I will give it a try!!
I don't understand why you can just cut out a silhouette of the buildings with an exacto knife and a ruler...
You can, but I wanted a more continuous (no spaces between building, just taller and shorter buildings flowing into one another) and authentic NYC skyline (i.e. Empire State Building, Chrysler Building) on a specific scale, for me, using a template was the easier and quicker way to get that look.
AFullhouse, I was replying to the original poster.
I did the above cake using this cutter:
