Cutting a cake in front of a paper-plate-clutching peanut gallery can be a thankless task (“That piece is so big!” “That slice is so small!” “How come she gets all the frosting?!”). But with Magisso’s mirrored stainless-steel cake server ($45 at Abode, 179 Grand St., nr. Bedford Ave., Williamsburg; 718-388-5383), it’s the tableware — not your questionable divvying skills — that grabs everyone’s attention. Slide the wide end of the sleek Finnish utensil down the middle of the cake, then squeeze and lift the handle to carve out a perfectly civilized one-and-a-half-inch-thick wedge. To transfer it to a plate, just give it a gentle shake. Presto — no uneven slices, no icing lost in transit, and, most important, no complaints. Plus, a sleeping bag, stackable serving bowls, and more in this week's issue. [NYM]
