How to slice the perfect piece of cheesecake

CherryCheesecake So you've made The Ultimate Canadian Cherry Cheesecake (of course you have, why wouldn't you!) Here is the secret to get a perfectly smooth and clean slice...a hot, dry knife (and lots of wiping). Run a large chef's knife under very hot water for a few seconds, turning so both sides of the knife get wet. Quickly wipe the water off with a towel and cut 1 side of the slice. Wet the knife again, wipe, again, and make another cut to complete the slice. Repeat to cut the remaining slices. This method works so well because the hot knife slightly melts the cheesecake, leaving a clean slice. Wiping after each slice ensure no crumbs and keeps each slice clean. It takes a little extra time, but the result is worth it! This technique also works for any soft and dense cake, bar or square.   Photography by Jeff Coulson/TC Media
