Enjoy a freshly-baked cake or a slice of delicious gateau from your favourite baker with the beautifully-formed cake forks from Villeroy & Boch. Read more...
They have gone in hand for generations: coffee and cake are just as much a part of Sunday as a lie-in or an afternoon stroll. Not even the seasons can change this old tradition on the day of rest: in winter you might prefer a slice of apple cake generously garnished with fresh whipped cream, while in summer it is more likely to be a light raspberry gateau (with just as much cream). Despite their small size, cake forks are therefore a vital component of a comprehensive table cutlery set. In the varied cutlery collections from Villeroy & Boch, you will find a large choice of cake forks that are perfect for combining with your existing cutlery set or coffee service.
It is not about whether they have three or four tines. What really matters with cake forks is whether their shape, colour and décor matches those of the cake plates. The Villeroy & Boch collections take exactly that into account. Serve a piece of Black Forest gateau on a plate with a rustic look. Decorated with complex reliefs or rural décors, it goes perfectly with a cake fork with a country image. When two brownies are served on a simple, modern cake plate, you would be better choosing a matching design for the forks. Those who pay attention to every last detail like this will of course bear their coffee or tea service in mind when choosing a set of cake forks.
When it came to producing its cutlery collections and therefore also its cake forks, Villeroy & Boch chose a premium stainless steel whose special alloy means it has absolutely no taste at all. The material is also dishwasher safe, saving you time when coffee time is over. The careful processing of the metal always produces fine surfaces that ensure that the cake forks in every collection have an especially elegant effect. The long-lasting elegance is also thanks to the fact that the steel never loses its shining components. This fade resistance is shared by the decorative silicon strips on the cake forks in our coffee range and the colourful plastic handles that shape the playful design of selected collections and children's cutlery sets.
Do you know what makes cake forks so special? They essentially combine a knife, fork and spoon in one. In the past, the left-hand tine of the fork was always wider and had a bent tip to help cut the slice of cake. The cake forks from Villeroy & Boch are made from strong stainless steel, so their tines need little extra thickness. In our collections, both outer tones are reinforced so that left-handers can also eat with ease. And the spoon function has not been lost either. The curve of the tines forms a kind of spoon for soft fruits, cream and crumbly cakes. For many cakes, however, the forks live up to their name and are used to stab one piece of cake after another.
