As everybody sits at dwelling imagining what life will probably be like as soon as we are able to once more collect and share pleasure at birthdays, weddings, and different occasions that want cake (or, as I wish to name them, “regular Saturday nights”), many ideas flip to how the brand new deal with security would possibly translate into modifications in custom. For some folks which may imply including a type of silly-looking plastic cake protector to the get together provides, however for others (like filmmaker Nancy Meyers, who shared this video on Instagram) it simply means a bit of artistic rethinking of how the cake will get served: overlook the knife, they’ve received wine glasses.
A video that’s been making the rounds on social media exhibits the way it’s achieved: a bunch gathers round a pink and white frosted cake and every particular person, one after the other, carves off a bit from the sting of the cake by urgent their wine glass straight down — not solely making the slice — however trapping the cake itself contained in the glass. When every particular person has their serving — no passing of plates by a number of arms or messy knives — they toast within the heart.
Like so many viral meals movies, it gives an answer to an issue minor sufficient that it didn’t essentially have to be fastened in such an outrageously absurd method that it finally ends up being a bit of bit ingenious. In spite of everything, serving cake in wine glasses does appear ridiculously further within the form of method that’s enjoyable — particularly as a result of it doesn’t require shopping for something new or including extra work for the host.
As an added bonus, if anybody within the group occurs to be a type of “I don’t just like the frosting” folks, they’ll simply wait till all the skin edges are gone and minimize themselves a slice made fully of the insides! Good.
