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.
