If you’ve ever observed the manner in which cake is served at events, you probably couldn’t help but notice (and perhaps, envy) how cleanly and precisely each piece is cut. Come to think of it, cakes are cut on almost every occasion. This makes it all the more important to know how to serve cakes, don’t you think? We think it does, and so does owning a great cake serving set when you need to do the honors.
So, in this blog, we’ll list some of the most common occasions that call for a perfect slice of heaven, and why those peculiarly shaped utensils are the key to doing it right.
Cake Serving Set: A Trend or a Necessity
While we talk about the knife and server, let’s not forget the unsung hero of dessert serving - the cake stands. With its ability to blend with its surroundings while providing the perfect presentation platform, it certainly deserves a special mention.
Here are just a few events where a cake serving set can make life easier -
Birthdays are celebrated universally with equal enthusiasm, and a majority of them have one major element in common - the birthday cake. After all, who doesn’t love a slice of that soft, moist sponge layered in sugar syrup and topped with delicious icing? And when made with care and love, its variety of flavors and delightful sweetness are enough to put a smile on your face every single time!
In some cultures, the birthday cake is also regarded as a symbol of joy and prosperity. In fact, most special occasions are typically celebrated with a sweet treat. This is due to the effect that sugar has on the senses, rendering the human brain euphoric.
Now, imagine a scenario in which you are celebrating yours or perhaps a loved one's special day. Surely, you would want to serve everyone an equal share of happiness! Uneven slices may put a damper for those looking forward to grabbing a slice of the sweet confection. That goes double if the cake is the highlight of the day.
This is where the cake serving set, complete with a sturdy cake stand, can be used together to ensure everything goes smoothly. In this case, the cake stands offers balance to the towering monstrosity, while the cake knife and server are extremely helpful in distributing the cake into even slices according to the number of guests. This way, everyone gets a fair share and you can avoid making a bad impression at the event.
Whether it's a wedding anniversary or the anniversary of your company's inauguration, celebrating it most certainly involves a cake-cutting ceremony. If anything, feeding cake to everyone present has become the favorite way to commemorate the occasion!
So now that you're aware of the growing importance of cakes, it has become even more important for you to use a good set of cake knives and stand, apart from a basic kitchen set. That is great for entertaining guests every time you serve the cake, but the stand will be useful for any type of solid food items you plan on serving to your guests in a presentable fashion.
If you're not going to cut every slice and the guests will serve the cake to themselves, placing the cake on a stand is the best way to let them cut portions as they desire. Moreover, the cake stand and server will prevent any mess.
