You know the saying, "there are many ways to skin a cat"? Well, there are also many ways to cut a round cake.

Most people slice it into wedges (like a pie chart) but there is one major downside of this if you have leftover cake; it makes the exposed area of the cake dry and rather unpleasant to eat.

Try it the next time you have leftovers (yes, we know – who ever has leftover cake?).
