A video showing the method one mum uses to cut cake has racked up more than 5.5 million views after being posted to TikTok as others vowed to start using the technique themselves
Cutting a cake is serious business as any attempts to sneak away with the biggest slice is the kind of behaviour that leads to family feuds lasting years.
Being entrusted with dividing up the cake at parties and other special occasions is a big responsibility, and abusing the power to scrape a few extra toppings onto your plate is a big no-no.
Even if you navigate through the tricky mathematics of portioning it off, you're then forced to try and balance each slice on the narrow blade of the knife to get it to a plate without watching it all fall apart before your very eyes.
But one mum has come up with an ingenious way to make the whole job a lot easier, and it's had more than 5.5 million views since being posted to TikTok.
