    I see that my technique was wrong, perhaps now I can break it apart without breaking so many leaves…

    Ah great video! I naturally gravitated to the back of my cakes for that very reason, saving the label as long as I could. This was very helpful to see you going from the side like you did and in a layer. Thank you.
    Also side note – love your wedding band, its very similar to my husbands!
