A common cake-assembling hassle is cutting cakes into even layers. Use dental floss instead; here's how: stick toothpicks exactly halfway up the side of a cake layer. You can use a ruler if you want to make sure they're all at the same level. Wrap dental floss around cake so the floss is snug against the cake and each toothpick. Make sure the floss alternates over the top and the bottom of each toothpick to anchor the cake and floss. Cross ends of floss in front of the cake and pull them away from each other to cut cake into even layers. Carefully separate layers.
