I do a combination of both but I try to use pans that give me the basic shape. My Giants cake uses the wilton football pan. For anything round I either use the Wilton sports ball pan or bake in a bowl. Sorry, I can't help you with a Cowboy cake... I'm a Giants fan icon_smile.gif jk Here's a template for making a star out of a square if you want to make the star. I used it to make a star cake recently but, unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture. It looks like you did a really good job with the Broncos cake, so I don't think you'll have any trouble.

Also, when you sculpt, freeze the cake first, and carve while it's still partially frozen. That will make it easier to carve.

lol you're so nice! lol b/c I thought the broncos cake was a complete disaster. First of all, the cake stuck to the pan, so I kept it and decorated it in the pan lol now I finally figured out how to keep it from sticking, then I tried using rice crispy treats and fondant, from seeing it on cake boss, that turned out awful, and I couldn't even color the fondant, so I painted it on lol then I messed up the field, well and also with these mistakes I didn't have enough time b/c the lil guy needs a lot of attention icon_smile.gif

oh and from me putting the fondant over the rice crispies it was all bumpy lol I figure u must first file it down? have u decorated with rice crispies before? if so what do u use?

but yeah that was a learning cake I guess icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Hmmm.. I've never actually used rice crispies, so I can't help you there. sorry!
