How would I best cut a cake (round, heart shaped, square, etc.) to make ensure that equal servings may be distributed evenly?

Cathy - from Elkhart, IN

The ideal size of each slice should be 1 to 1-1/2 inches by 2 inches. When starting to cut any shaped cake, choose one side to start from and keep cutting each piece in a uniform size and manner. Our cake cutting guide contains some of the most popular shapes.
