Dessert forks add whimsy to your dining room. When people see a place setting with a dessert fork, they know they are in for a treat. Use your dessert forks to serve items like pie, cake and pastries, that’s why it is often called a cake fork. While this type of fork is not exactly an essential, it will certainly add an extra bit of charm to your restaurant. When setting a formal place setting, the dessert fork goes to the top of the plate, like it is facing the diner, and increasing their anticipation throughout the meal. On a casual table, the dessert is served with a fork instead. The dessert fork usually only appears on a place setting if there is not also a dessert spoon; if the meal is served with both a dessert spoon and dessert fork than the spoon is above the fork and the spoon faces toward the left while the fork faces it’s tines to the right.
