Undercover Chef Tip – Having your cake and cutting it too

Ever starting cutting up a beautiful birthday cake and found by the third slice it looks a little less than beautiful? So what to do?

An easy solution is to warm up the knife in hot water to allow it to cut through the icing cleanly.

So how do you warm up the knife easily? Just place some hot water in a measuring jug, dip the knife in for a few seconds, slice through with ease, wipe off the knife with paper towel, re-dip and continue to cut, repeating the dip and wipe with each slice.

The result? Lovely clean slices that do justice to the cake. Woohoo.
