Do you go by the Wilton cutting/serving guide? I know I saw another tute here somewhere (couldn't find it yet) where the baker cut the rounds into logs and laid them down on their sides and cut them up that way. At weddings in the past I've cut others cakes the Wilton way. Now that I'm doing my first wedding cake (for a friend - and I'm thinking I will also be the one cutting - or at least need to instruct someone on how to cut it), but I'd like to know what you do - what would you suggest? I will have an 11-9-7 cake (with a 5 for the bride & groom).

Awesome! Thanks for posting this. I always cut rounds like this but never thought to turn the cake on it's side.

Thank you TexasSugar - that was the link I was thinking of!

So is that the way most of you cut? Or is the Wilton way preferred?
