I know there is a post on here somewhere with pics, but I'll explain it the best I can. The easiest way is on a fondant covered cake, however it can be done in buttercream.

Cut a large triangle out of cardboard (or use a plastic one). Stand the triangle up next to your cake, and follow the slanted edge with the tool you are using (I have the plastic "pizza cutter" type tool from Wilton, it's a ribbon cutter I believe?). Then one inch after that line, do another one and so on around your cake. Next flip your triangle over, and repeat going the opposite way.

I sure hope this makes sense. I do know there is a post on here somewhere with pictures!

Aha! Found it. There's even a link to the tool I was talking about.
