When you make an awesome cake that has a lot of components to it. How do you cut it? How do you explain to customer? Do you write instructions for deconstruction etc?
Separate all tiers .... start cutting!
I did a 3-D duck for a baby shower once (using the wilton duck pan) and told my friend, "Hack the head off, then slice it right down the middle!"
Debi, you can take the simplest thing and make it funny. You made me chuckle! Thanks!
If it's a tall 3D, I say "timber!' and knock it down and butcher it.
If it's a 3-D cake that can't be seperated like a stacked cake I give them tips and let them know how big the peices should be,but basically I tell them to cut t how ever is easiest for them. I always make my 3-D cakes a little on the big side to allow for difficult cutting anyways.
