Start from the top by removing the 6" tier, which is usually the
bride and groom's cake to be saved. Cut a circle about two inches from the outer edge of
the 10" tier. Work from this circle and make vertical cuts about one inch apart,
until the ring is completely sliced. Use the same starting procedure and cut another
two-inch ring, again slicing into one-inch pieces. Repeat the procedure until the tier is
completed; then repeat entire process on 14" tier until all the cake has been served.

Start from the top by removing the 6" tier, which is usually the bride and groom's cake to be saved. Work from any side to cut a horizontal line about two inches from the outer edge of the tier. Slice from right to left to make vertical cuts about one inch apart, until the entire row has been sliced. Cut another horizontal line two inches from the new edge, and slice this row. Repeat until the entire tier has been cut. You should produce five rows in the 10" tier. Move to the 14" and repeat the process for seven rows.
