How To Cut And Serve A Cake Without A Knife

Although it might seem impossible to imagine a cake being served without a knife, sometimes life happens. You might find yourself in a situation that plates are not easily available.

This viral cake hack addresses both issues with one solution. While the method has some people online reeling, we think it’s kind of genius. It’s arguably the easiest and quickest way one can divvy up cake to their guests. It’s also a fun way for children to eat and serve cake.

How to Cut a Cake without a Knife

The secret to this method is…(drum roll please)…a wine glass! You read that right. Simply flip the glass upside-down and scoop up a piece of cake. It’s that simple!

Ideally, you’ll need a sturdy wine glass (those cheap ones from the dollar store work great), and a cake that’s room temperature and spongey. Stacked cakes are a better choice than sheet cakes. Plus, everyone gets to choose their portion size and it doesn’t leave one person cutting the cake, potentially touching everyone’s slice. No thanks! 

However, people had mixed feelings about this hack. The most wholesome comment of all by far was, “Awe now everyone has a cupcake.”  

Some people were more skeptical, and a lot of commenters had this take: “Just think about somebody doing it too hard and shattering the glass into the cake. Yummy, crunchy glass cake!”

One person didn’t know how to feel stating, “I don’t know why but I absolutely hate this.” And, another user had their mind changed, “Yeah, at first I wanted to hate it, but this is actually brilliant.”

Picnics, Kids’ Parties, Etc.

We’re big fans of this hack though. It’s a great hack that could be used at all types of parties! Imagine a kid’s party where you don’t have to worry so much about spillage! Okay, so we don’t recommend using wine glasses in this case. However, plastic goblets are a good alternative. stemless glassesThis would be great.

Additionally, you don’t want to bring extra silverware when you travel to picnics or other outdoor events. Again, in this case, the cake could be “cut” using reusable plastic tumblers.

You know what to do if you find yourself in a situation where you have no knives and a cake.
