Let me start by saying I did not have my usual SLR camera for these photos, so forgive the bad lighting and weird colors. Sometimes a girl just doesn’t want to be weighed down by a big camera at a party, ya know!
I went to a graduation party where there was a beautifully made cake to celebrate my step-niece’s high school graduation. I was handed this plate with a perfectly cut piece of cake on it that looked like it was from a wedding reception. I walked into the kitchen and this is what I found on the table.
It took me a while to understand what I was seeing. I then realized that my step-brother who brought the cake, cut it the professional way. This is the way to cut a large round cake and he mentioned that is how wedding cakes are cut too.
So you first cut a smaller circle in the middle and then the slices are a a manageable size. This also helps with the falling cake issue when you are cutting a multi-layered cake…………..genius!!
Now, I just want to bake a 4-layered cake just so I can cut it this way.
Here is the perfectly cut piece of cake. Now you can go to any wedding and be confident you’ll be able to cut a beautiful slice of cake!!
