Round wedding cakes...they are the traditional shape of an elegant and classy wedding cake! They are so beautiful to look at, but cutting it...well that's another story. Or is it? Round wedding cakes look pretty difficult to cut. However, with the help of a few tricks they are rather easy. Here is the best way to cut a cake to get the most servings and create beautiful looking slices for your guests to enjoy!
When you cut your cake you want to imagine going into the cake about 2 inches. From that point you will begin to cut a small line, staying about 2 inches from the end, creating a semi-circle. Once you have that base you want to cut down from your semi-circle to the end of the cake. Slide your knife over an inch and cut again. Then plate. Go over another inch and cut down, serving your second slice. And so forth. This will give you a beautiful slice of cake that is roughly 5 inches tall, 2 inches long, and 1 inch wide. I need to make a video showcasing this technique, but in the meantime hopefully this photo will suffice. Once you have finished the first row, go in another 2 inches and repeat the process. When you get to a small circle in the middle of your cake then you will cut that in half and either serve or cut those two haves in half as well...giving your guests yet another nice rectangle slice of cake.
So, order your round cake and get the look you want...slice with ease...and ENJOY!
