In the new ONLAYS CONTEST there's a cake with a silhouetted girl. I'm wondering where I would be able to get these kinds of silhouette cutters? The silhouette shapes I see on cakes are always so defined, and I'd like to mimic that. So is it achieved by use of a machine?

You can get really great definition if you use modelling chocolate/candy clay rolled about 5mm thick and placed on a cold tile (pop it in the frigde/freezer for a bit), that makes it much firmer when you cut (use a scalpel) and you get no stretching/distortion. Hope that helps :-)

AHello! I made a Barbie silhouette cake not too Lon ago. I made my marshmallow fondant, rolled it out(a bit thick) popped it in the freezer for just a few minutes and then I traced the shaped onto the fondant from a picture I printed offline. You can try it! Very easy. And I do that with most of my decorations. [IMG][/IMG]

This is the one I made
