I am doing a 4 tier wedding cake in December and each tier will be separated by styrofoam blocks which will be wrapped with satin ribbon. I've got a large piece of styrofoam from Michaels that is the right depth, I just need to cut it to size. What is the best way to cut it and get a good, clean, square cut. I've thought about a compound miter saw but that's about it so far.
How do you cut yours?
A good serrated knife.
They also sell a hot wire gizmo that heats up & burns thru the styro not bad if you can hold it straight while pushing the hot wire thru.
Once you have a good basic cut smooth it out by rubbing w/a discarded piece of styro.
I have the styro cutter with the heated wire. It is not the easiest thing to use as it is difficult to cut perfectly straight lines. I have also used my electric kitchen knife (one used for carving meat). I think you are going to have to experiment to find what works best for you. Good luck.
Electric Knife is th best!!!
I like the heated wire or serrated knife.
