Cake Cutting Guide
To cut round cakes, move in two inches from the cake's outer edge; cut a circle and then slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces within the circle. Now move in another 2 inches, cut another circle, slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces and so on until the cake is completely cut.
Note: 6 inch diameter cakes should be cut in wedges, without a center circle. Cut Petal and Hexagon cakes similar to round tiers.
To cut square cakes, move in 2 inches from the outer edge and top to bottom. Then slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces of cake. Now move in another 2 inches and slice again until the entire cake is cut.
Sheet Cakes - 1 1/2 x 2 in. Slices
Follow the diagrams below to cut sheet cakes (from 3 to 6 in. high), but adjust for the larger party-size slices. For cakes shorter than 3 in. you will need to cut wider slices to serve a proper portion.
All Sheet cakes from Verglo's come as a “Single Layer Cake”. However all can be split with a filling. That filling can be buttercream icing of any of the fruit or cream flavored fillings that we offer. Some fillings do have an additional charge
