If you are a sugar-conscious family, then you would probably need to learn Sir Francis Galton’s way to cut a cake. According to Sir Galton’s letter to the editor to the 1906 journal Nature, the ordinary method of cutting out a wedge is faulty because it does not minimize the  exposure of the cake’s surface. Exposure of the interior of the cake for a period of time can make it dry.
