Magisso Cake Server: The Perfect Piece


The simple task of serving cake – slicing a nice piece and getting it to your plate – can be quite difficult sometimes. I do a lot of baking. It’s a creative outlet for me to find a recipe, give it my personal twist and then have my friends over to try it out. I don’t mind doing the dishes and I certainly don’t mind the company, what I don’t like is the part where I have to slice the cake and serve it. Somehow I always have a problem, either the slices aren’t even or they topple over (cream-side down usually) as I’m transferring them to the plate. If it’s a family gathering then I let my mother do it, she is the original cake master, but in other cases this isn’t an option and I have to struggle with the task myself. Then I stumbled upon the Magisso Cake Server. Continue reading

Alessi Colombina Tray: Serving With Style


I have a friend with a special sixth sense for unique items. That means that if we both went shopping for anything, she’d be the one finding the most special things – clothes, shoes, furniture or any other designer item you could think about. Last week we went shopping for Christmas gifts, and once more she found that special item. As we were browsing through kitchen gadgets, she spotted a very special tray by Alessi. Continue reading


Hands On Salad Bowls: Mix it Up


My family loves to eat (heck, who doesn’t) and lucky me, they are not too picky with their food; nevertheless, I find it essential to have a bowl of fresh salad with every meal as we all know the importance of eating fresh vegetables. Now, we’re getting to a grey zone. I love lettuce in my salad, it’s green, it’s healthy and full of vitamins, the only catch is it’s hard to mix lettuce with the rest of the salad, as it can be a bit heavy and take up most of the bowl’s space. When I saw Hands On salad bowls I knew I found the perfect solution for this little hurdle. Continue reading
