When To Cut A Cake
by: Michelle (admin)

Hi Maddy,

It may be just what you said, that you are cutting the cake too early. For filling and crumb coating, refrigerate the cake for a couple of hours before splitting the layers and filling.

If you're cutting the cake to serve it, refrigerate for at least a couple hours (even better, overnight) and let the cake come to room temperature before cutting.
