How to cut a round cake diagram

To cut a round wedding cake, move in two inches from the outer edge. Cut a circle and then slice 1-inch pieces within the circle. Next, move in another 2 inches, cut another circle, slice 1-inch pieces, and so on until the cake tier is completely cut. The center core can be cut into 3rds, 4ths, and 6ths, depending upon the size of the cake.
