Cutting a cake is pretty straightforward: slice it up and devour.
However, if you aren’t planning on eating it all in one go, how you cut your cake can affect the flavour and how long it stays fresh.
In a video on YouTube, Alex Bello explains why cutting a cake in a wedge is ruining your cake eating experience.
"You're not maximising the amount of gastronomic pleasure that you can make this cake," he says. Adding, once you a piece is cut, the inside of the cake is exposed to air, drying it out.
Instead, Bello refers to Sir Francis Galton, a British mathematician’s method of cake cutting which involves taking long, thin pieces from the cake's centre.
