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.

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.

I don't understand why you can just cut out a silhouette of the buildings with an exacto knife and a ruler...

I found this one doing a simple search..It's fabulous!!!

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.
