This is another time I was I was Jan icon_smile.gif She would have all the links ready to post for you.
This was discussed recently but I have no idea what the thread title would be.

You can use a (sewers?) triangle OR you can marke the top & bottom of your cake evenly (1"?).
Now, using a ruler make a line from one line on the top to one off on the bottom (so the line is angled). Go all around the cake, then do it the other way. I understand if you pad the ruler w/a well folded paper towel you won't 'cut' thru the icing.

I tried it myself and the icing kept pulling off onto the spatula. So someone on here suggested that I use cornstarch to help. I haven't tried it...but just thought I'd share my experience.
