With so many people doing the flag cake this weekend, I thought I would give this helpful tip. Since cutting the cake is when it starts to get messy, here are some helpful tips to make a cleaner cut so the layers of a cake are more defined and cleaner.
1. CHILL THE CAKE! As long as you put a good coating of buttercream/frosting on it the cake should not dry out.
2. Use hot water and a hot clean knife. Between slices, clean the knife and slip it down into very hot water.
3. Make sure the knife is completely dry after dipping it in the hot water.
