I've done one in buttercream before and it's really very easy. If you're using fondant, I think that thread above should help you. If you have questions on BC, let me know.

Okay, here goes:

You just frost and decorate the cake in BC as usual. Then, stick the cake, uncovered, in the freezer for 1/2 hour. With a very sharp knife, cut out a slice of cake and place it on top. Take a small offset spatula and frost the place where the slice used to be. Remember to make a stripe in the center to look like filling. Finally, ice the cut edge of the slice on top.

Here's a photo of the one I did. HTH!
