Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used a 10" and 8" yellow cake. I crumb coated it with buttercream and then covered it in white fondant. I airbrushed it in silver although it did not come out darker as I wanted to and I used a whole bottle. I also airbrushed a lil black on the bottom borders but its not as noticeable with other decor. For his name a downloaded a new font can't recall the name at the moment printed out the letters using Microsoft word using parchment paper I cut out the letters out of fondant. I free formed the skyscrapers out of black fondant and pipedyellow windows out of buttercream. I also rolled some fondant over an mat to give the Impression of bricks cutting it shorter in certain areas.
