But you're right, it really isn't that mucht more work than any other sculpted cake.
I just do it "freestyle" without measuring every exact cut. The only thing I measure is the right distance on a round cake, but I usually just use an hexagon, square or flower shaped cakeboard under a round cake as a guideline. With other shaped cakes, I just use the cake itself as a guideline.... of course icon_smile.gif
Other than that, I just play with it and see what comes out icon_smile.gif



OMG!. If I had to do it freehand I would be lucky if there was a cake left the size of a cupcake. I'd have to use toothpics AND the Wilton tool, which I have. icon_rolleyes.gif

I do mark the cut lines sometimes, or at least make an indentation on the side so I know how far I can go. Maybe you could use a square or diamond shape cookie cutter to mark te cut lines?

I marked my cake at even intervals and carved it some, then used cake scraps to make the shape:
