Marcus Wareing's Cheesecake Slicing Technique

With the right tin in hand, it's now time to move on to the slicing. Having the perfect cheesecake is only half the battle - serving it beautifully is equally essential. Here, Marcus Wareing imparts his wisdom.

One of his top tips when slicing a cheesecake is to first dip your knife in hot water. This simple step can make a world of difference. The heat from the water warms the blade, helping it to glide smoothly through the cheesecake. This ensures that each slice is clean and maintains the cheesecake's structure, resulting in a perfect, photogenic cut.

This method not only provides aesthetically pleasing slices but also ensures that each slice retains its full complement of texture and flavour, offering your guests a delicious experience.


Baking a cheesecake can be a labour of love, and presenting it should be just as fulfilling. With the Circulon springform cake tin and Marcus Wareing's expert slicing technique, you can achieve professional results at home.

Remember, the key to a perfect cheesecake doesn't just lie in the recipe or the baking process. It's also about the right tools and techniques for serving. So, whether you're a seasoned baker or a beginner, these tips will help you take your cheesecake game to the next level.
