How to Cut a Wedding Cake

Do you know how to cut a wedding cake? Or any round cake for that matter?

I’ll teach you.

1. If the cake is multiple tiers, you must separate them. This is easily done with a couple cake servers and extra pair of hands. Place each tier on its own cutting surface, so you can slice them separately.

2. Using a long, smooth knife, cut a circle in the middle of the tier {the dashed line}.

3. Then cut slices up to that inner circle. Each slice should be about the width of your finger.

You’ll be left with a cylinder of cake in the middle.

Of course you can cut & serve the center just like you did the outer ring.

Or you could hoard it for yourself to devour with a fork and gallon of milk.

I would know nothing of that last option. Nothing at all.
