My Cake School has a great tutorial on a spiral cake- I am a member there so I can access the video. She marks her tiers with edible marker where she wants to cut and then marks her knife with a sharpie about an inch from the top of the blade. She uses that as her guide to know how deep to cut into the cake. I made a three tier spiral cake from this video tutorial. Make sure your tiers are very cold when you start slicing.
