I'm delivering this cake in a couple of hours and I have no clue what the best way to cut this cake is! It's 4 layers, then a board help up by bubble straws, then another 4 layers with a rice crispy point on top. There is a wooden skewer that goes through the center and down in to the bottom cake board. It's covered in marshmallow fondant. How should it be served?
Thanks in advance!
1 Cut the RKT top off and save for birthday boy.
2 Find where the cardboard round is. Cut through mmf and lift off to a platter. Cut necessary number of servings.
3 Cut into bottom tier and serve.
It should be treated like two cakes with a topper.
First of all, are your servings based on 4-layers or 2-layers? Here's what I would do for both. Tell the customer to cut off the rice krispie top. The proceed to cut as a basic round. Use the traditional wedge cut for the small top 4-layers and the block cutting from the outside of the circle, then wedge cutting towards the center on the inner part of the bottom 4-layers. For the 4-layer serving, cut and serve. For 2-layers, cut down through the 4-layers, remove top 2-layers with knife and serve, then serve bottom 2-layers. Move on to next slice and repeat. HTH
Matthew's way works too. His comment wasn't there when I started on this for you. Either way, I included a chart for you JIC.
AThank you both very much!
Awesome cake BTW!
