The Twist

A neat, convenient cake cutter 

 

Context.

Cake can be messy, unless you have a good knife, the patience to clean the knife after every stroke, a spatula specifically to move the slice, and the balance of a ninja so the slice doesn't flop over.

Or maybe you're like me.

But who doesn't like a nice, neat piece of cake that they don't have to wait 20 minutes for?

Brief.

In what way might we cut and move slices of cake, neatly and efficiently, with minimal crumbs and damage to slices?

The white dial holds blades 1, 3, 5 ,7 while the black dial holds blades 2, 4, 6, and 8.

When the dials are pushed in clockwise and anticlockwise directions, they grip alternate slices, and these 4 slices can now be moved to a new plate.
