**TIP for a clean slice of cake: Very Chilled Cake & Very Hot Knife
Freeze cake for at least 2 hours before serving.
When you are ready to slice a cake, place a very sharp knife into a glass of boiling water. Remove the knife, wipe dry and make your first cut.
Dip back into the boiling water to clean and re-heat. Wipe dry and make another cut.
Repeat these steps to make very clean cut.
