Slice or wedge - piece of cake...

How to cute a cake
Quote
Forget everything you know about cake cutting; this new method could turn the seemingly straight-forward practice on its head.
Although, using the word ‘new’ isn’t accurate, because the method is actually a 100-year-old trick unearthed by London-based author and mathematician Alex Bellos.
In his latest YouTube video, Bellos describes how taking wedges out of cakes leaves them susceptible to drying - and we should instead be cutting them in lines so the whole cake can be sealed and stored.

Personally I'd prefer a wedge rather than a slice if the cake is round. I think it looks nicer on the plate and more appetising. As for staying fresh... It's would never be around long enough Cool
So, are you a wedgie or a slicer Grin

Some things are not "new" but newly resurrected
I have to admit that a slice of the action, does look more appetising Wink

I do hope Mr Bellos has received no payment from public money for this piece of "research".
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
