The Scientific Way to Cut a Cake

Cutting a cake seems easy enough, if you don't happen to eat the entire thing yourself. Grab a knife, cut a few slices, then pop the rest in the fridge. Well, according to science, we're doing it wrong.

In a new video by British author Alex Bellos, also known as Numberphile, Bellos notes that cutting a triangle slice out of a cake from the center (the classic way) can lead to dry areas where the cake is left exposed. Or as Bellos says, "You're not maximizing the amount of gastronomic pleasure."

And if we're really being realistic, you shouldn't need that many days to eat a cake anyway.
