    With your exacto or box cutter cut a wedge out of the middle of the good side.

    Set up newspaper or used magazines around your work area, this project can get pretty messy.

    Then give that side, top, bottom and sides a coat of spray paint.

    Let dry and apply a second layer of Spray paint. (Repeat this step until the cake slice is the desired color)

    Step 7

    Fill your piping bag or baggie(cut off one corner) with the silicone or latex calking. Then carefully start piping the calking "icing" onto the sides, top and middle groove.

    Calking can be very messy and difficult to work with, I recommend you look up how to wash off calking before you even get it out.

    Set them up to dry so the calking doesn't glue themselves together or to your newspaper.
