How to Cut a Cake

Learn how to cut a cake so everyone gets the same size piece courtesy of Essential Cakes pastry chef Etwin Gordon in this Howcast video.

An easy way to serve your cake and to actually cut it so that you can get the most out of it: average cake size shouldn’t be actually more than maybe two inches wide and maybe about an inch and a half across. So what you want to do is maybe score your cake actually before you cut it. So if you have an eight inch cake you can score it across four times. And then what you want to do is you want to get it scored across six times in this direction. So that way you can get about 24 slices of cake out of your cake. So, you’ll cut across this way. And then your cake shouldn’t be any bigger than an inch and a half by two inches wide. You have a three layer of cake, so that should be enough serving for one person.
