I read Wilton's round cutting guide & thought I had it down, but then when looking at the yearbook's example I'm totally lost.
It says to move in 2", cut a circle then when you get to 6" round to cut into wedges.
So, for a 10" (which I'm delivering tomorrow & need a cutting guide to give them) it shows cutting all the way around, then cutting the 8" into wedges. Then for the 12" it shows moving in 2", then another 2" then cutting into wedges (which I'm thinking it's an 8" round, but has bigger wedges).
So, I'm totally confused how this works & have no idea where to begin to draw a template to give the people. Can someone clarify this confusion for me?
**Oh, I'm using the "party" sizes (1.5" x 2" x 4").
personally i cut the cake into stripes. Move in 2 inches from the edge, the two end pieces will be wedges with lots of icing, then just cut your 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide pieces. Much easier then bothering with the circle thing.
I don't know the website right off, but go to Indydebi's website...she has cutting instructions that make cutting a round cake very easy.
I'm sure it's probably posted on CC a million time too.
I also recommend the long "stripe" cuts. Cutting that circle makes that part of the cake unstable and it can fall off the cake.
There is a picture turitorial on here, let me check my pics for you..
Go to indydebs photo's page 4 there are pictures on how to cut it. I myself strugled with this until I came across her pics. Hope this helps out.
