I am hoping to market my cakes to caterers and businesses who would need the cakes pre-cut. Does anyone know of the best knife for pre-cutting cake slices, or other desserts for that matter, that won't mush and mess up delicate cake layers.

Also, I've heard of cake serving forms that can be pressed on top of a cake to give you exactly sized slices every time. Any info on where to find that would be terrific!

Thanks.

The best knife i have for cutting my cakes is a serated bread knife by Rada Cutlery. You can find these at knife dealers and a lot of higher end antique shops. As for the form, don't know about that... Good Luck!

Dental floss works better than any knife i have ever used! Cut a piece 6-8 inches longer than the longest cut, wrap each end around your thumbs and pull it down thru the cake....let go of only one end and pull it out the side...not pulling it up thru the top as this will mess the frosting. Repeat as needed. The cake will be fully cut but look like it has indentations in the cake rather than cuts! You can use 10 lb test fishing line...very strong tailors thread....all will work the same way to give you a neatly 'cut' cake that can have each piece decorated. I also have used it on a sheet cake with an airbrushed picture on it and it did not adversely effect the picture.

I also LOVE the dental floss. It makes the cakes look so nice and neat, but I've always wondered what would happen if you used the mint or bubblegum flavored floss? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
