Tips on how best to cut your cake!

How do you tackle cutting a round cake?

Most of us cut traditional triangle slices that never cut evenly or break away when removing them.

So how do you get even slices easily?

Here's what we recommend...

Rather than cutting triangles that are fiddly to handle, cut the cake straight across about 3-4 cm in from the side. Lie the sliced section flat onto a chopping board and cut nice even rectangle pieces. Repeat until you've cut enough slices.
