Keep your cake from sticking to the serving plate

Before placing your baked cake on the plate, lightly dust the plate with powdered sugar. This keeps it from sticking to the plate and the slices come out in whole pieces rather than falling apart. From the cakes I've made, it doesn't stay white, it turns the color of the cake. You can dust the top of the cake just before turning it upside down onto the plate too.

Is there an easy way to cut up turnips??? I love to eat them but never make them because it is to hard to cut them up.
