Just the smallest sliver...

Tomorrow is my birthday (whhheeeee!) and we will, of course, be having a small birthday gathering for our family. Whenever my family and I get together in the same room and there is a cake present, everyone always wants a different sized piece, so my poor cake ends up looking like a jigsaw puzzle. I'm always repositioning the knife saying "like this?" to get that perfectly sized piece.

So, in honor of Rock Your Kitchen Week here on Chic Shopper Chick, today's nifty and cool kitchen gadget is the S-XL Cake Mould from Charles and Marie.
This solves the problem of the different sizes for different family members. And now, I'll know that when my grandmother says she "just wants a sliver" that I can just dive right in and cut her the biggest piece. Because she never means it.

Oh, and for kicks, I had to include the graphic from their website that showed the different sized stick figures that correspond to the different sized pieces. It's a good thing they included those to clear up what sized person should get what piece. I am not sure whether it is a bit offensive or not, but it is certainly still hilarious.

The S-XL Cake Mould is available at Charles and Marie for $33.

So what do you think of this Cake Mould? Would you use it or is it too frivolous for you?

Seems kind of silly to me. We just cut whatever size slice a person wants around here.

That's pretty funny. This is just another one of those gadgets that would be neat to have but really not necessary at all.

What a funny little cake pan. I could see it being helpful. Not sure if I would "rush out" to buy it.

Happy Birthday.

I love it, it's hilarious! I can see it as a great (humorous) talking point at a b'day party.

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
Secondly, I think this product is kind of cool. It might be something I'd buy, use once or twice, and then forget about it, but I guess that all depends on how well it works. IF it worked great then I'm sure I'd use it on a regular basis.

Thanks so much!!

I think this would be a frivolous buy. It is just not for my family. It is funny though.
