Cheesecake is one of the trickiest desserts to cut, especially if you want to get those perfectly smooth slices when you’re serving it. It is difficult to cut because the cake is so moist and it sticks to the knife.
One of the best tricks to cut cheesecake neatly and perfectly shaped pieces, is keeping the knife (a very sharp knife) you are using clean and smooth. In order to do this, simply fill a container with hot tap water deep enough to cover the blade of your knife. Or just hold the knife under hot tap water. Start with dipping the knife into the hot water, and wipe it on a clean towel before making every cut. The constant dipping and cleaning process will prevent chunks of cake from the previous slice from depositing on top of the next slice. And voila! Perfect piece everytime.
Some people prefer to cut cheesecake using an unflavored dental floss. Feels more practical for them, so for a 9-inch cheesecake, cut off about 18 inches of the unflavored dental floss, wrap it at the ends around your fingers, then press it firmly through the cake and into the crust. To get it out, let go of one end of the floss and pull it through the cake at the bottom. You can repeat this process for all the remaining slices.
Another way is the paper divider inserted between each slice, keeps the blade clean and helps each piece stay fresh until served
