Party Cakesó1 1/2 x 2 in. Slices
The diagrams shown represent the cutting plan for specific pan shapes. You will use the same general technique to cut each size cake in that shape.

Round Cakes
To cut round cakes, move in two inches from the cake's outer edge; cut a circle and then slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces within the circle. Now move in another 2 inches, cut another circle, slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces and so on until the cake is completely cut.

Note: 6-inch diameter cakes should be cut in wedges, without a center circle. Cut Petal and Hexagon cakes similar to round tiers.

Square Cakes
To cut square cakes, move in 2 inches from the outer edge and cut across. Then slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces of cake. Now move in another 2 inches and slice again until the entire cake is cut.

Sheet Cakes
Cut sheet cakes similar to square cakes.
