There's a 'Right' Way to Cut a Round Cake and You're Probably Not Doing It

Serving triangles? Yeah, you're doing it wrong.

Serving triangles? Yeah, you're doing it wrong.

We've just been hit with the mind-boggling realization that we've been cutting cakes the wrong way for our entire lives. Do you take to your round cakes with the triangular slice method? Well, here's a bit of life-changing information — or at the very least a handy tidbit for your next birthday party:

The triangular slice is not the "scientific" way to cut a cake. Instead, writer and mathematician Alex Bellos recommends a different approach, which helps keep any leftovers fresher longer. He cites a Letter to the Editor from Nature, a weekly science magazine, that dates back to December 1906. [post_ads_2]

Following the century-old notes and illustrations, Bellos cuts a round cake down the middle (gasp!) and removes one long rectangular piece at a time, allowing the two halves, and then four quarters, to be pushed back together again. Check out his video tutorial and prepare to be amazed.

Of course if you really want to up your cake-serving game, break out the dental floss for the cleanest cuts you've ever seen. Seriously.
