I just bought a Wilton cake lifter-it is quite sturdy. Says it can handle a 16" cake-what a joke 9with 2, I guess!!). I used it to handle a torted 9x13 and it was awesome. I realized that is not much of a test. I think it is higher quality than than the rest of the Wilton products.
Speaking of things you serve to family....My older sister went to the basement to bring up the frozen "Mile high strawberry pie" from the freezer and....it slipped out of the pie pan and landed ONTO THE DIRT FLOOR of the farmhouse basement. She put it back into the pie pan and we ate it! she didn't say a word until years later & we are all aliveicon_smile.gif

don't worry

One year I dropped the Christmas ham on the floor in front of everyone. icon_cry.gif

We picked it up, brushed it off (ha, ha) and served it anyway and it was yummy.

They have made moving cakes, turning cakes.... anything to do with taking a cake from one place to another.... so much easier.



Wilton cake lifters... as Martha says, "A Good Thing."
Get them with your coupon at your local Hobby Lobby or Michaels. LOVE mine!

edited to add that I have two and can lift anything, any size when I slide them in on each side of the cake, and one is perfect for everything up to 10" with no feeling of insecurity.

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

One time when a friend and I were teens, we made a big pot of spaghetti to feed her family and another family who was moving...so not really much food in the house other than that. We were taking it next door so everyone could eat lunch and somehow my friend tripped or something...we dumped the pot of spaghetti on the sidewalk! We were terrified because that was lunch...that was it...nothing else available! (This was out in South Dakota and in a spot no Mickey D right down the road). So we looked around, and quick picked up all the spaghetti that wasn't actually making contact with the ground and threw it back in the pot...and then grabbed her dog to hurry up and eat the stuff off the ground that WAS touching the ground, and served it.

We never told the parents until YEARS later. haha.

Anyone whose ever eaten food prepared in a restaurant, fast food outlet, carnival, fair etc has eaten their fair share of dirt, germs whatever - just a fact of life (that we all like to ignore! lol)

My DH likes to quote a fact he read a long time ago, that on average every human will eat 7 spiders in their life! So scraped off cake with fresh icing - meh!!

Dont we all have those moments - after a disaster - when you stand still in time and think "WHY did I DO that!" icon_cry.gif Turned out great!

Good catch!! (Well, I guess you didn't catch it, but you know what I mean..!) icon_lol.gif

I recently bought the Wilton lifter and really like it because I'm a 'fingers in the icing' kinda gal! I think I will get another and have a pair.

I'm also a 'five second rule' gal, so the drop wouldn't bother me, as long as it were for family!

This reminded me of an incident I had years ago when my kids were small and long before I started playing with cake. My son wanted a strawberry shortcake for his birthday cake. Just before I reached the table I dropped the cake on the floor. After all the "Oh, no's!" my two and their cousins each grabbed a fork and sat down on the floor and at the cake. They thought it was the greatest thing!!

I also have 2 of the Wilton cake lifters and love them. Being new to cake decorating and only doing it as a hobby I really don't have anything else to compare them to!!

NO SPATULAS FOR CARRYING. I slide an offset under the cake to lift the edge, then slide my hand underneath to lift it and carry it with both hands. Same thing in reverse when putting it down. Place down the far edge and then use the offset to hold the near edge up while you remove your hand and lower it into place with the offset.
