Cut any cake with precision without a knife

If you’re reading this you’ve probably, at some point in your life, been to a child’s birthday party where once the birthday candles have been blown out, those little hands and mouths frantically await for their slices of cake. And the adult who is unfortunate enough to be standing nearest the cake will not have to cut fast but cut well so they don’t mess up the pretty cake!

Have you ever been that person? Have you ever wished there were a magic way to cut even slices in seconds without using a dangerously sharp metal object?

And let’s not forget those cakes that we proudly decorate only to stay pretty up to being cut because the knife makes a mess out of it.

Well, this Instructables hack will let you cut any cake (without hard icing) with precision without a knife.

All you need is dental floss! Cut a piece of floss plenty longer than your cake’s width and then wrap the two ends around each of your forefingers a few times. After that, you can start “cutting” the cake. Easy!
