How to cut your cake

1 -

Remove all decorations from the cake; including ribbons, toppers and dowels.

Use a serrated knife to cut and make sure you have a chopping board ready to slice on.

2 - 

The number of complete cuts you make will depend on the size of the cake.

Work with one full slice at a time and for the purpose of this example, this is a larger slice from the middle of the cake.

3 - 

From the curved edge make a straight cut across the cake from one side to the other, approx. 1'' (2.5cm) thick.

4 - 

Lie the full slice down flat on a chopping board. Then split the slice in approx. 2'' (5cm - dessert) or 1'' (2.5cm - wedding) portions. Depending on the height of the cake it can be cut in half if needed.

5 - 

Repeat this action across each full cake slice until the whole cake has been portioned.
