Left Handed Cake Fork

Cake forks are curved inwards so you can pick up the cake, and have a serrated (wrong word, really, I mean sharp) edge at the bottom to act as the "knife" to cut the cake. If you're left handed (I'm not) you'll be holding it in your other hand (duh!), and so either the fork will curve the wrong way, or the knife part will be the wrong way up.

       Baked: my gran has some of these.

       Odd. If your cake is so hard you need a knife to cut it, get yourself a new cake.

       Is it that hard to use a fork in the other hand? Are south-paws starving to death 'round the world from lack of the essential vitamins and nutrients found only in cake? Just eat with your hands.

       What is it with you people? Is today official "Just Do Without It" day?

       To go with your right handed coke spoon?

       I didn't know you can get left handed cake.

       [bristolz] Beat me to it.

       Rbl: sometimes it's helpful to have foods in smaller pieces than 'all of it'. These are called 'servings'. It's kind of unhygenic to hand the whole cake around and let someone gnaw off a bite, then pass it on...

       Starchaser: Two things: I have a habit of eating the entire baked good before it has a chance to cool, thus eliminating any other dishes. but, For the rest of you: Aren't cakes soft? I have a simple cake slicer with no sharp edges, wedge shaped for picking up the piece to move to plates.   

       Maybe there are different kinds of cakes?   

       Lastly: many people here seem fixated on hygiene!
rbl, Feb 22 2002
  

       Cakes are soft, but it's still necessary to subdivide them, this is called 'cutting'. Anything that is used to cut is often referred to as a 'knife', whether or not it's actually sharp.
StarChaser, Feb 22 2002
  

       So if I slice my cake with a spatula, it then by default becomes a knife?
mighty_cheese, Feb 22 2002
  

       Thank you, StarChaser, that's what I was trying to say.
pottedstu, Feb 22 2002
  

       If we didn't divide the cake, just passed it around as StarChaser mentioned, this may solve the issues being discussed in "immunizing tabletop".
