When someone asks me to do the “honor” of cutting a cake, my palms always begin to sweat. Cutting a cake isn’t all that easy, especially if it’s a big one. You want to ensure you’re cutting slices that aren’t too small, aren’t too big, and are all even. Thankfully, we’re going to show you how to cut a large, round cake in a way that ensures all of the pieces are evenly sized.

We found out about this great tip via the Rachael Ray Show. All you have to do is get a small or medium size bowl (depending on the size of your cake), and gently place it on top of the cake, right in the middle. This will act as your guide. Remove the bowl and cut around the circle you’ve just made.

Now, you can cut slices around the edge of the cake. When these slices get eaten, you can then move onto the smaller cake in the center. Pretty smart, right? This is a trick commonly used by bakers and catering staff, as it allows you to cut a cake in the quickest, easiest, and most even way possible. You’ll definitely want to remember this trick the next time you’re tasked with serving cake to a large group of people.
