Make 2 standard cuts, perpendicular to each other (leaves 4 slices).
The 3rd cut is made on a horizontal plane, midway along the height of cake.

However, if the cake has icing only on the exterior, the top 4 slices will have more icing than the bottom 4.....hardly "equal pieces"....

now stack the 4 slices on top of each other and cut the stack in half.
Definitely a messy solution. ;)
