Here’re 5 Easy Tips To Slice A Cake Perfectly:
1. Chill The Cake
Always keep the cake in refrigerator for some time before slicing it. This will firm up the cake and make it easy for you to slice evenly.
2. Use Big Knife
Always use a bigger knife – a bread knife or chef’s knife – to cut the cake. This will help you have a firm grip while slicing.
3. Use Hot And Wet Knife
This is one of the most effective hacks to follow. Take the knife, warm it up for a few seconds and wipe with dampen cloth. Then immediately slice the cake. This will help you slide through the frosting, without smearing it.
4. Wipe Knife In Between
Never let the frosting or the crumbs collect on the knife. This makes it even difficult to cut the cake. In fact, it always suggested to wipe off the knife at regular intervals, while slicing the cake.
5. Use Dental Floss Or Thread
If you have a large sheet of cake, then a thread or dental floss is the best tool to use. It helps you slice the cake cleanly, without any fear of it getting crumbled or smeared.
Now that you got these amazing hacks handy, what are you waiting for? Prepare yourself a yummy piece of cake, slice it and indulge. Here are some amazing cake recipes for you.
