When you make an awesome cake that has a lot of components to it. How do you cut it? How do you explain to customer? Do you write instructions for deconstruction etc?

Separate all tiers .... start cutting!

I did a 3-D duck for a baby shower once (using the wilton duck pan) and told my friend, "Hack the head off, then slice it right down the middle!"

If it's a tall 3D, I say "timber!' and knock it down and butcher it. icon_smile.gif

If it's a 3-D cake that can't be seperated like a stacked cake I give them tips and let them know how big the peices should be,but basically I tell them to cut t how ever is easiest for them. I always make my 3-D cakes a little on the big side to allow for difficult cutting anyways.
