Welcome to my cooking classes, today you’ll learn how to cut a cake into layers!
Knowing how to cut a cake in half horizontally is essential in many recipes.
You’ll need a sponge cake, of course, and a long sharp knife, or a sturdy nylon or cotton string.
Using a paring knife, score a line around the outside of the cake as a guide for cutting.
Then insert the blade of your knife into the cut, hold it steady and cut horizontally through the centre of the cake to make two layers.
If using the string method, slide the string into the cut and pull through the cake.
For best results, slice the cake the day after it’s made
If your sponge cake is tall enough, you can make 3 layers
