I baked six layers, in six separate cake pans, but I also used a fun tool. The wire on the cutting tool is adjustable and it makes perfectly even layers. For years, I’ve always used a knife and trimmed the cake layers, but this is a brilliant invention! I’m sure I’m the last person on Earth who has discovered this, but I think it’s pretty cool. After the cake is cool, you just saw off the top of the cake layer.
I don’t think the kids at the party could really appreciate the perfectly even layers, but I’m sure it made the cake taste better.
