Whether you’ve slaved over a gorgeous cake to serve at your latest bash, or paid good money for one from a local bakery, cakes are often a centerpiece of a dessert table. They go from pretty to pretty-smashed-up once a knife cuts through it, making it difficult and unappetizing to serve.

Instead of cutting through a cake with a knife which can destroy the esthetics of your dessert, try using unflavored dental floss and slicing down and out the bottom of the cake. By holding a strip of floss just wide enough that it can go over the cake while you hold from either end, keeping it taut, cut down the cake with the floss. Instead of coming back up through your cut, slide the floss out the bottom of the cake (this will make lifting an ease!). This makes for the perfect portion sizing too. Need just a sliver? Piece of cake.
