Tutorial: Cake Layering by cakecrumbs Tutorial: Cake Layering by cakecrumbs
[ETA] I'm re-doing my tutorials to make them more dA-friendly.

What would you say if I told you you could flawlessly layer a cake with a piece of string?

It's a piece of cake!

I spent $50 on a Wilton cake layering tool only to have it routinely fail, and eye balling it was always at least slightly imprecise, particularly on large cakes.

So I decided it was time to return to basics. This technique is perfect, and is not as time consuming as you'd think. I avoided trying this for years because I thought it would be too bothersome, but it's really not a fuss at all. It is now my go-to layering technique.

The full post is here: [link]

Oh jeeze. Never thought of cutting around the edge of a cake before doing the string thing (I normally use floss, works great!), even though I've gone to grab a knife to start the slicing a few times.

Thanks for posting!

This is really handy, Thanks. I can now do this and finally have even layers on my rainbow cake. First time I did it the inside actually had a curve like a rainbow.
