Pre-sliced cake? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
What a frustration to us cake decorators. Spending all the time and using our skill to make sure that cakes look gorgeous only to be messed up. I can imagine what you went through. Hope you don't get such request often icon_smile.gif

Um... yeah.

Pre-sliced cake = cupcakes!!

What a DOPE she was! Can't believe she'd pay all that money, make you do all that work, then not let anyone see it looking pretty. What is the point then? Why not just get a plain cake with nothing on it. What a waste of your time - at least you got a decent paycheck from it!

I'm glad it worked out for you. You want to please your customer, but you can't compromise you product!

I never actually precut my cakes. I'm afraid it will dry them out. I just use the dental floss method, but only cut through the icing, not the cake. That way they know where to cut it. icon_lol.gif

hi there!

i know this is a really old topic, but I'm also trying to figure out how to go about serving pre-sliced cake, more specifically, the type with the paper between the slices.
like this:

does anyone know how to get the paper between the slices? do i have to remove the slices and rearrange them with the paper between?

any help would be greatly appreciated! icon_smile.gif

If you look closely you will see the paper is actually one piece that is 'folded' in half. I cut the cake first, then .... using a larger than needed piece of parchment, place the knife in the middle of the paper then push the knife (on top of the paper) thru the caek. The knife will push the paper in place.

Good idea debi. I have a restaurant that wants cheesecakes pre-sliced but intact.

Also, to add to indydeb......

Make sure to use a cold cake, it will make your life much easier!

that's a great trick. Looks impossible, but easy once you know the trick, ,like magic.
