Even if you find a cutter, it may not be exactly the right size for your cake. I'd suggest making your own template and then using a sharp knife to cut by hand.

As you need the pentagon to be just a tad smaller than the hexagon - so as they all fit together.

I ordered a set of both - so as to make sure they all fitted neatly togeher.


ETA - they aren't cutters - but templates.
Easy enough to cut around tho with an exaco knife.

Thankyou endymion
I hunted high and low for cutters
when i got the order for the soccer ball cake - and time was running out.
Then i just googled *pentagon & hexagon shapes* and voula - there they were -
Sometimes i think we get *cake* tools in our head - and not just *tools*
Taught me to think outside my square - lollllllllllllllllllllllll

And because they are thick perspex - made for easy cutting around - and they didn't slip or slide. thumbs_up.gificon_smile.gif
