Hi everyone! Today's tip is on, how to best cut a round cake, so you get as many pieces as possible. And here I have an eight-inch round cake that most people will cut it by cutting it in half and then cutting it in half again and then cutting it in half again, so you get eight pieces and a problem is, what if you need more than eight pieces, that magic number of eight. What starts to happen is, the pieces, the serving sizes get a little funky; one is a little too big, one is a little too small. So, what can you do? I would like to show you a way that you can cut it, so that you get as many pieces as you need.
So, here is my cake and what you do is you take your knife and cut a circle out at the center, sort of make like a donut. Doesn't have to be perfect and I learnt this when I was working in a hotel, in a pastry kitchen, we used to have weddings and they have these big wedding cakes that had big round tiers of cake and we had to cut hundreds of pieces of cake out of each one. So, here is the little center. And now, what you do is, from this ring, you slice your pieces and you can make them as smaller or as large you like. So, here we have a small one and may be you are going to pair it with some ice-cream.
Here is one that is a little bigger, may be that's sort of, on its own, just has a little whip cream and a couple of berries. But, safe to say you are going to get far more pieces of cake than the eight that cutting it the other way would get you. So, I hope you found this helpful. And you also get your own little goodie, when you cut it this way. If you ever have a tip, let me know, drop a note at dyannbakes.com and we will put it on the show. So, thanks for watching and I will see you soon.
