No solder work at all. You need to cut through the trace, the copper part is the trace which is under a light coating on the board. The best way to do that is with an exacto-knife. It doesn't need to be a wide cut, just make sure it goes through the copper trace itself, not just the finish on top. And, obviously a given, make sure it's not plugged in when you do that as you are cutting a power line trace.
