When Jean-Luc Bouchard of Urban-Butik, the North American distributor of Magisso products, offered me a sample of the new Magisso Cake Server I accepted immediately. I like the concept but I was curious to see if it really works. After all, the practicality of a single serving ware piece instead of the typical cake knife and server set is appealing.
I first discovered the Magisso Cake Server through a NYC Gift Fair report done by Maxwell of Apartment Therapy. But the video posted on AT did not convince me because Miika served a sponge cake at the fair. Too easy! I wanted to make sure it cuts through more demanding cakes before introducing the Magisso Cake Server on my blog.
To simplify my life, Jean-Luc offered to bring me a cake. He showed up at my door the next day with the co-owner Anne Foged. They brought me a soft interior cake with an icing top similar to what you get on a mille-feuilles minus the pastry. This is more what I was looking for. Plus, the cake was delicious.
How the Magisso Cake Serve Works
The curve side down, you start on an angle by pressing at the center of the cake and move the cake server flat to neatly cut a cake piece. You squeeze a little bit the handle while you transfer the cake on a plate. Release. Voilà! It is super easy and it works every time. Your kids will be able to do it.
Get one for yourself and stock a few for your Christmas gifts. Your friends and family should appreciate it.

But how messy is it to serve more than one slice of cake?! Does it really work??

MaxMillion, this is the point of the article: It really works for many, many pieces of cake and with any type of cake. A lot less messy than the typical way.

Just wondering, 2 years down, is the magisso cake server still working as advertised? I saw 3 reviews on Amazon, 2 of which were very bad, saying that it broke, and the third was a positive statement about how good it looks. nothing about its longevity…

Jonathan, I only know about the stainless steel model. I got the impression that the first one that broke on Amazon was the plastic model. I don’t often serve cake at home. I use mine only when I host a party or at birthdays because I like the fact that it speeds up serving cake. I washed mine in the dishwasher and it is still in excellent condition. Reviews are excellent on the design-savvy shop finnstyle.
