Window Shopping Wednesday - Cake Lifters







I've made a few layered and decorated cakes so far, and the prospect of moving them onto a cake board always fills me with panic. I currently use a pallet knife and cake slice to manoeuvre the cake into place and hope for the best!

After being recommended to try a cake lifter, I decided to have a look and add them to the "Window Shopping Wednesday" series.

This week, I've been looking at the following cake lifters.


This cake lifter is from Sainsbury's and is currently priced at £3. It is made of stainless steel and looks pretty sturdy, but I'm not sure how thick or flexible it is. It's a pretty good size at 34.5 x 25cm.

You can find the direct link here.

This cake lifter is from Dunelm Mill and also doubles up as a cake stencil. It is currently priced at £3.49. It is made of plastic, but I'm not sure how big it is. It's quite a good idea to have a built in stencil, but I think I'd prefer metal over plastic for sturdiness.

This cake lifter is from Windsor Cake Craft and is currently priced at £9.80. It is also made of stainless steel and has a 25cm diameter.

This Wilton cake lifter is from Cake Stuff. Wilton are a big name in baking accessories, and this cake lifter is currently priced at £10.85. It is made of stainless steel, but is a bit smaller than the others at 8" (around 20cm).

I've ordered from Cake Stuff a few times in the past and always found their service to be fantastic!

The prices on these cake lifters are a little varied, but I think I will definitely give a stainless steel one a go. I think I would be a little uneasy with a plastic one!

Which one would you choose?

Have you used any of the products I've shown here? If so, what do you think of them?

I'll be sure to review whichever ones I do buy, so I will keep you all posted!

    1. That's a little spooky Gary! I'm definitely going to invest in one of these, I think it could turn out to be an indispensable piece of kit!

  2. I've been using the one from Sainsbury's as a chopping board. With shaped end it's perfect to cut veg and then pour into the pan. Easy to clean and a handle to hold. (Link to the webpage has been broken but they still sell them)
