First I baked two 9x13 inch rectangular cakes, iced the middle and layered them. Then I took an image of the xbox controller as a template and carefully cut out the shape. If you scroll down you will see a jpg image that I used for the xbox 360 controller template. I copied and pasted the jpg image into Word, set the page to landscape, and expanded the image to fit the entire 8.5"x11" size page. This fits pretty good with the cake size I used.
|I printed and cut out the image and used a knife to start shaping the cake. I had to use skewers to keep the paper in place!|
|Iced the cake with buttercream and let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes.|

I pasted this image on a word document, 8.5x11 standard letter size in landscape, then stretched the image out to fit the entire page. This will fit a 9x13 cake pan.
