Dress up your counters with a bouquet--or at least a flower--that will never die. And unlike live greenery, this one's also a cake slicing guide.

Ever tried to slice a round cake into equal pieces? Perhaps you are more skilled than I, but I have a ridiculous amount of trouble slicing a cake into eighths, twelfths--or even fourths. Apparently, I am not the only one in the world with this problem, hence the invention of this innovative cake-slicing guide from Wagaii (Taiwanese for "I like it!" according to their Web site).
It's a small plastic flower with removable petals and leaves. (I'm guessing it's plastic, actually, because I don't speak Taiwanese.) Remove the single disc of petals and place it in the middle of the cake to slice into 3, 4, 6, or 12 equal pieces--each petal spans 30 degrees.
The leaves let you slice the cake into 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10 pieces. Put the flower back together and store it on the counter when it's not in use. I'd get one--if I could figure out how to order one. If you can enlighten me, leave a comment!
