Everyone is cracking up over Prince Edward's unusual cake-cutting technique

Do the royals know how to cut a simple sheet cake? We're not so sure.

If you're ever in need of someone to liven up a basic birthday party with some fancy cake-cutting tricks, then Prince Edward is definitely your guy.

The uncle of Prince William and Prince Harry had the internet marveling at his panache with a knife after the royal family posted a short video from a ceremony that recently took place at a community center in Northern Ireland.

First, he raises the blade directly above the white sheet cake and takes several practice jabs into the air. Why? We're not sure, but he performs every motion with deliberate elegance.

Edward, 55, who is the youngest of Queen Elizabeth's four children, doesn't play by the rules when it comes to cutting a cake, either. Instead of gently cutting a few pieces from the side, he goes right for the middle and slices a clean line to the end, finally withdrawing the knife with a sword fighter's flourish.

The Earl of Wessex's performance at the Lakeland Community Care Centre's 25th anniversary has left many, many people impressed.

After cutting the cake, Edward then met with volunteers from the center for rural residents of Fermanagh. Then he took a tour of the community garden.

But going forward, he will likely be best remembered for his stunning knife work.

No word on whether Edward first displayed his creative cake-cutting skills back in 1999 when he married Sophie, Countess of Wessex, at Windsor Castle. We can only hope he performs the honors at the next royal wedding when it comes time to help out with dessert.
