Welcome to the Cake Decorators Q&A
Cutting unusual shaped cakes
I love the chocolate wrap cakes, and the exploding parcel, but just wondered the best way to cut the cakes with false tops. My cakes would only be for birthday celebrations, so no chance of taking them away, out of site to cut.
When its a designer style cake most celebrations go through the ceremony of cutting the cake then take it through to the kitchen to be cut for serving. This will certainly happen at weddings, but if your having a celebration in the house you can always unravel the cake and cut in front of the guests - but better behind the scenes!
