Does anyone know where I can get a foot templet from on the web.  I have been looking for the templet for like 2weeks now and I still havent found it. 


I need to cut a sheet cake in the shape of a huge foot with a tar spot on the heel of it.  Any ideas?

take a ruler and mark all the way around it however much bigger you need it


1", 2" , 3" whatever


connect the dots cut it out


i have these little dealios i made--they used to sell them


i cut the rim off a plastic lid so it's just a flat circular piece of plastic


put a small hole in the middle -- big enough for a pen tip


you can use that as a guide to make boards that outline the cake ex. a character cake


or in this case a foot


the pen makes the mark and the plastic circle keeps the pen equidistant from the edge you want to outline


it revolves around the pen as the axis

AI use publisher or excel to enlarge & print. Both will print "tiles" meaning both programs recognize the printable page is smaller and will print on multiple pages. Then, tape the pages together.
