Editor's Notes

March 14, 2019:

If you're looking for a serving set for a wedding or anniversary, you may want something ornate, like the Ella Celebration Elegant Silver or Le'raze Goldleaf. On the other hand, the Lenox Adorn and Wallace Hotel are fancy enough for a special occasion without being too over-the-top for everyday use. For those in need of a utensil for home use that can be used to trim, slice, and level layers, the Fat Daddio's Slicer and Kutler 14" are both great options, and the Bakehouse Trading Co. Ultimate comes as a set with two knives suited for cutting different types of cakes. Removed the ZYLISS Dessert Knife and Brandobay Slicer as they were no longer available. Also eliminated the Fashioncraft Interlocking Hearts Design and Luvax Wedding Cake, which, unfortunately, have a level of quality that matches their low price.
