I have used it on a few occasions now with great success. You have to use a sawing motion and you have to move through the cake slowly and not rush. If you do this it works perfectly. I have used it on denser cakes like madeira with no problem, both to remove the top and to cut them in half. I find that because it has an adjustable height I am able to remove just what I want, and get a nice smooth, flat finish.
Overall, I think for the money, it does a brilliant job and I'm glad I have one!
It's a great size,works ok, but would be far far better with a serrated blade as only any good for soft sponges!
Kitchen Craft Cake Cutting Wire
However, i used this last weekend and it is awful! I made a very light sponge cake and it wouldn't cut through. The cake wasn't even burnt or anything.
I also noticed the wire has got a dent in it!
I am not happy with this...in future I will just use a knife, I do a better job cutting it straight than this wire does.
It is more like a cheese wire than a cutting tool, but whereas a cheese wire is great for cutting through solid blocks of cheese it would simply squash and crush something as soft as a sponge. It needs a sawing action with a little serration to cut through sponge.
Once I had leveled the wire and bent the legs out slightly to improve the tension I wasn't able to simply pass the wire through. I had to have someone hold the sponge whilst I had a hand on each side of the cutter. I then applied pressure and had to saw back and forth to break through the crust (no it wasn't over cooked!). Once that was done it was a little easier. It helped to have the cake rotated as I went along. You had to be careful not to lean the cutter as this alters the depth of the cut (hence why it was easier to move the cake around whilst I kept the cutter perfectly upright.
When the cake was finally cut it was a very nice and clean cut through, but it just wasn't worth the messing about. Had this had a blade similar to the survival wire saws it would have been a bit messier with crumbs, but a lot easier to do.
On the plus side, if you remove the wire and wrap it around wooden dowels it makes for a good cheese wire!

It's very good but I wish it was slightly sharper. With a very light sponge cake it takes awhile to saw through. Heavier cakes are much easier to saw of course. Read morePublished 22 days ago by kara-karina (Nocturnal Book Reviews)
Makes it soooooo easy. I'm dangerous with a knife, I'm always cutting myself and my cakes end up lopsided or bloodstained (yuck). Read morePublished 25 days ago by Leonie
Excellent! Cuts so well, especially if you chill the cake base. But you don't have to do that as long as the cake base is sufficiently cooled...Published 27 days ago by A. Lim
