Ok this may be a silly question, but has anyone ever heard of someone or had the experience of being stopped at customs due to a cake cutting set. We purchased a beach themed one to match our wedding cake topper, but the last thing I want is to be held up at customs, with charges due to transporting knives of some sort lol.
Like I said, silly question, but I am curious to know.

It's doubtful that customs will even search your bags, but I don't think it's a problem as long as it's in your checked luggage. I wrapped my set in bubble wrap & put it in my checked luggage & it was fine. One person in my group of 18 that traveled together got stopped by the red light at customs, but the whole search took less than a minute. They lifted up a few things & that was it & they sent them on their way.

Thanks for the reply. I did look into it of course with my travel agent as I was worried I could not bring it, and I absolutely love the set I picked out. He assured me as long as it was in my checked luggage I would be ok

I agree with what was said. I had ours in my checked bag, in it's original box and it was fine!
