STEP 1: Get your supplies
Reach for your favorite bread knife before you begin sawing into the top of your cake.
STEP 2: Position the knife
Position the blade of your bread knife right where the cake’s dome begins to rise up.
STEP 3: Start sawing
Place your less dominate hand on top and using a gentle sawing motion, cut roughly one inch into the cake. Then use your hand to guide your blade as you rotate the cake about 45 degrees and repeat the sawing motion.
STEP 4: Turn and Cut
Keep turning and slicing until there is a loose flap around the entire cake. From there, remove the flap to reveal a perfectly level cake!
