I opened it in the kitchen and left it on the counter. I came back to the kitchen to find my husband holding it with a confused look on his face. My husband is black so I knew what he was thinking but I wanted to see what he would say. I said "you like my tool, they say it will make my life a whole lot easier when I have to cut cakes". He said "Whatever, but that's an afro comb". Me "no it's a cake breaker. See" showing him the instructions. He said "tracy I've been black my entire life and where I am from THAT is an afro comb."

I cracked up and then I told him indydeb's story! LOL!

well, back in my day, we called them cake cutters, but they were used as afro pics!!! I can understand Tracy why your husband looked confused. To me, i thank I will have a little problem using them knowing what they was used for. If i by chance get one i have to hid it from my boys!! icon_razz.gif

It orginially was used for making angel food cake, but I could have swore I seen my uncle use one when he was in high school.

OMG Tracy...dying here! LOL LOL...too funny. My husband, also black, says you could have gone to the drug store and gotten an afro comb for SO much cheaper! LOL! We are going to be passing your story around for a week! LOL! JUST too funny!

Well Tracy....I too purchased a cake breaker/cutter! And I practiced at home...I thought it really helped a lot. Then.....

As I prepare to start cutting my 5 tier cake....the groom's father, who is on the stage...stood up and yelled...wait don't use that...it's an afro comb!

I tried to reassure him that it was not...he didn't believe me. Needless to say, I decided not to use it ..since everyone got so paranoid! I probably should have went on anyway...but I did not...even though I had already shown it to the bride prior to the wedding and thought it was fine.

You called it right Indydebi!

Oh and I also wanted to say to Indydebi....thank you for answering all my questions, pms, and emails about my first big wedding cake. Your advice totally put me at ease and I did everything as you described (except for using the cake cutter/comb! LOL) It went off without a hitch! Thanks again.

You're a wonderful asset to Cake Central.

I read debi's post too!!! and did find it hilarous, but I have to say being black, Myself, the afro combs, I knew of in my time are quite a bit different, and I was born in 72. The handle was at the top like this cake breaker, but the comb was right behind the handle if you understand what I mean, not at the side.

Oh, no, those are what we white folks used when we had a perm (during the Farrah Fawcett hair days ... man, I looked HOT with that hair back then!) to add the height and fluff! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

If that cake breaker is made of metal I cringe at the thought of what it'd do to someone's head. Ouch!! Such funny stories!! People, even the mooo-rons are funny.

A cake breaker, angel food cutter.....does indeed look like a certain afro pick from back in the day. Here's a picture so you can see the family resemblance. I will try to attach to this post.

topaz176....please don't be discouraged. icon_wink.gif

I read the original post by Indydebi, instructing on how to use it and let me tell you...it actually does come in handy. Regardless of what it looks like...it really does get the job done! You don't create such a mess with it....your hands stay clean the whole time you're cutting that big wedding cake....and your table looks professional and clean.

It's good...really, I like it.

Oh, yeah. I was HOT, too, with my red hair in a curly perm. I had a pick just like that. One of my friends later looked at a picture of that hair and said, "That was just not a good hair decision, Ruth." sigh...

I need to figure out how to scan my 1991 Mrs. Rose Festival Queen photo so you guys can have a big shocking look. Big hair de-LUXE!!! But dang I looked good! (you have to if you're gonna win a pageant at the age of 32!!!!) icon_biggrin.gif
