Kitchen Quick Tips - Cutting Cake

kitchen quick tips

Use dental floss to cut a cake in half horizontally for a neater cut.  Simply wrap the thread around the sides of the cake making sure it is centred then cross the ends and pull together to slice the cake into two layers.

Having a very delicious cake is so much fun. But cutting it beautifully is hard. Thank you for sharing that very easy way to cut a cake. I am going to share it to my friends and they are going to be surprise in that new way of cutting cakes.
