Tips for cutting a cake without a knife

1. Cup or glass

  • The trick is for each person to take a glass of wine or glass in their hands.
  • The idea is to put it upside down and take it from the base.
  • With the mouth of the glass you can take a piece of the cake sinking it to the edge.
  • This will be inside the utensil, you will only have to lift it and you can eat it with a spoon.
  • Of course, since it is a high-fat dessert, the glasses will be very dirty. It is best to wash them with hot water (not boiling) and by hand.

2. Salad tongs

  • They are ideal for serving the salad, but here we will give them another use.
  • All you have to do is take the tongs by the ends (where you touch the vegetables) and place them on top of the cake.
  • You lower them firmly and you will see how you get a triangular cut of the cake.
  • Repeat the action for each slice of your guests.
  • If you want the portions to come out smaller, you will only have to close the clamp a little when you take them from the ends.
