Cut cake from centre height wise then from above make a cut from midlle to boundary then make another two cuts from boundary to middle dividing cake into 2/5 each and another 1/5.

ReplyDeleteThere is a more creative solution.

ReplyDeleteInstead of cutting the cake vertically, the folks would slice it horizontally.

Only 4 cuts are required to have 5 equal round slices, like this:

xxxxx

cut 1

xxxxx

cut 2

xxxxx

cut 3

xxxxx

cut 4

xxxxx

Perfect!
