I just saw this on allrecipes, and I wanted to share it with you guys:
Here's a trick I learned a couple of years ago about splitting the cake. Instead of using a knife to cut the cake, you can use dental floss. Just use a long piece of floss to line up the floss with center height of the cake, all the way around the edge. When the floss is all lined up, loop the ends over each other and pull through. This will give one perfect slice through the cake two make two thin cakes!
It might be obvious to you guys, but I thought this was cool!
I heard that before but thanks for reminded me!! That is a good tip!!
I started out torting cakes like that. If you have trouble keeping the floss level, stick toothpicks in the side of the cake.
I did that a few times too, but I can do it way quicker with a knife. It's great for when you are a little aprehensive about going at your cake freehand with a knife.
I use the cake tin and a knife, that works great. I may just have to try the dental floss trick though...
