Adjustable Wire Straight Cake Slicer 5 "Phew!" R Woodhouse 10 July 2019 Having read the very mixed reviews I was a little unsure what to expect! But I am so pleased that I bought the slicer, following advice to work slowly and with a sawing motion, working around the perimeter of my cake I found it was perfect for both levelling the top and cutting cake into two layers to sandwich together. I struggled using a knife and as I am on a steep learning curve to make a three tier cake for my son’s wedding in August, I am so relieved that I can now make the tiers level. My cakes are made using quite a solid madeira mix but the slicer managed to cut these successfully.
