“How Do I Cut My Cake?”
Wedding Cake Cutting Guide
This guide shows how to cut popular shaped wedding tiers into pieces approximately 1 in. x 2 in. by two layers high (about 4 in.). Even if a larger serving size is desired, the order of cutting is still the same. The first step in cutting is to remove the top tier, and then begin the cutting with the 2nd tier followed by the 3rd, 4th and so on. The top tier is usually saved for the first anniversary, so it is not calculated into the serving amount.
Move in two inches from the tier’s outer edge; cut a circle and then slice 1 in. pieces within the circle. Now move in another 2 inches, cut another circle, slice 1 inch pieces and so on until the tier is completely cut. The center core of each tier and the small top tier can be cut into 3rds, 4ths, and 6ths, depending on size.
Move in 2 in. from the outer edge and cut across. Then slice 1 in. pieces of cake. Now move in another 2 in. and slice again until the entire tier is cut.
Cut similar to round tiers as diagram shows.
Divide the tiers vertically into 1/2ths, 4ths, 6ths and 8ths. Within rows,slice 1 in. pieces of cake.
So Beautiful & Perfect, I Didn’t Want to Cut It!
