Cake With Blueberries and Creme Fraiche

It's my birthday! And this is my imaginary birthday cake as it's impossible to get fresh blueberries (or anything like them) in the tropics where I live - and I love dark-blue-anti-oxidant-rich berries! Emilia made this beautiful cake using almond flour and fresh bilberries. Yum!

Sweet Cake Knife

Sweet Cake Knife

WMF Bistro Cake Knife

A cake knife needs to have:

a long blade
a slight curve
a pointed tip
a smooth edge

This one has it all, plus the slightly flared blade makes it perfect for serving small pieces of cake. Made of high-quality stainless steel and dishwasher safe, this is one sweet blade.

We also love this classic Yamazaki cake knife that carries a lifetime warranty.
