I recently had the opportunity to make a 1 foot wide Chicago Blackhawks cake for the ultimate Chicago Blackhawks fan…
The logo measured about 10″ across and was all cut out by hand, using a template and one of my favorite tools, my Exacto/craft knife:
I actually got this knife for just a dollar at the Dollar Store, but wow – I’ve definitely used it lots! I love the detail that it can cut out with such a fine point.
Here’s a pic of the cutting process in the beginning:
What I like about this tool is that it comes with disposable blades, so once the blade gets dull, I can change it for a brand new sharp one.
And I can’t stress enough to be careful with knives, and especially this one. It really is sharp!
