nice design, function iffy

The cake server is very handsome, but had troubles with cake.
Merchant Response:The size of a piece has been measured according to regular serving sizes in Europe, where it is customary to take second servings of cake. US customers may find this a bit smaller than they are accustomed to, but it's a great opportunity to use the server to cut another piece!
The cake server is not best for fruit pies. For these types of cakes and pies Magisso has developed another specialized product, The Magisso Pie Server by the same designer Maria Kivijärvi. http://www.finnstyle.com/magisso-pie-server.html
ProsThe cake server is a nice concept and looks very handsome. It limits the size of the pieces cut, so might be ideal for someone on a diet. However, it doesn't work very well at what it is designed to do.
ConsIt doesn't cut cake! Perhaps it would work better for something like pumpkin pie where the filling is firm. Though I haven't tried it, it seems likely to have trouble with a fruit pie that requires support for a bottom crust or has a filling that might ooze.
