Cutting & Serving Event Style Cake Tips

What is the first thing you should think about when you get invited to an event? Who will be there? What am I going to wear? Where is it located? Wrong.



We know we get excited when cake is on the event's itinerary. “What flavor is it? Who is going to cut it? How many pieces can we have?

Well, to answer a few of those questions, here are some tips on how to (and how not to) cut and serve your cake.


Things you will need:
The good thing is that this isn't rocket science, so all you will need is:

  • Cutting tool (kitchen knife recommended)

  • Flat surface

  • Cutting board/flat board

  • Plates

  • Cake

  • Hungry people


How to serve:









How not to serve:
Our layered cakes have wooden dowels inside to make sure they are stabilized.

Do not serve your guests these dowels, as they do not taste like cake. Leave the wood

eating to the beavers.

Final notes:
Whether you are serving 5 guests or big soiree, event style cutting is the best way to go!

  • 4-layer cake will give you 2 pieces per slice

  • 6 layers cake will give you 3 pieces per slice

  • 1000-layer cake will give you 500 pieces per slice

Serving it event style? Make sure to cut across, making rectangular shaped cuts.

Lean a cutting board up against it and give your cake a trust fall. Once securely

placed on a flat surface, cut them into smaller rectangular pieces and serve.
