Woman’s ‘genius’ hack of cutting cake with wine glasses sparks furious debate

A woman’s inventive – yet very controversial – cake cutting technique has divided people’s opinions online.

While some people cut their cake in half, then in half again, repeating the method until it’s sectioned into identical triangles, others like Kylie Jenner – who was called a “literal psychopath” by fans for her technique – prefers to take a chunk out of the middle.

But Instead of using a knife, or dishing out the cake in a bowl or on a plate, TikTok user @theroseperiod uses a wine glass.

The woman showcased the method when her daughter celebrated her 20th birthday with her friends – and it’s definitely unconventional.

The clip shows her daughter blowing out the candles before each member of the group takes it in turns to scoop up a piece of cake from around the edge using a wine glass, and cheers-ing with it.

But we have so many questions.

Wouldn’t it be easier to wash up a small plate rather than wiping down delicate wine glasses? And more importantly, what if someone presses too hard and their glass shatters into the cake?

Since being posted, the video has been viewed more than 1.6 million times and liked 457,000 times.

And while a few people thought the hack was genius – especially for being Covid-proof – others were quick to find fault with it.

One said: “Omg – I think you just discovered something new” while another wrote: “Next birthday party we are TOTALLY doing this.”

A third called the hack: “Genius” and others labelled it: “LIFE CHANGING,” and said: “We’ve been eating cake wrong.”

But not all of her followers were impressed as one person said: “That’s a lot of dishes tho.”

A second then added: “But now you eating out [of] sticky glasses,” while another commented: “I feel like I just witnessed a crime taking place.”

Will this be your new cake-cutting technique?
