So I've been using this crappy bread knife from Winn Dixie to carve my cakes with... It sucks!!! Does anyone know where I can find a good quality cake knife and do they sell more than one size??TIA
When you say carve, I guess you mean to shape into a 3-D form? The best style will be a well-made serrated knife. There are many different lengths, widths, and compositions to choose from. Your projects and budget will dictate the size you need - longer blades for larger projects and shorter blades for smaller projects or for detail work. Dexter Russell has a moderately-priced line that you may be able to find locally or you can order on-line. I took a sculpting class with Bronwen Weber, and she used a Dexter Russell that had a bit of flex in the blade - not too stiff. She could hold the handle in one hand and the tip of the knife in the other hand and actually bend the blade just a little to give a curved surface.
Yes, I meant for 3D cakes! Thanks alot for the info ibmoser!!!
