I have been having serious issues on my 2-3 cakes with them not being level. This has not been one of my (many) issues in the past and it is really killing me. I have decided that my cake leveler must be the culprit. It was given to me by a friend about (don't laugh) 12 years ago and it was a very expensive leveler at the time. I can't believe I am just now figuring out that this may be the problem. I even got the level out and checked my countertops! Anyway, any suggestions on your favorite way/device for getting perfectly level cakes? Thanks so much!

Every time this question gets asked, the answer is always the same - Agbay.

Seriously cake people, this is a really good skill to learn. There is always a knife, not always a doo-dad.

When you tort your layer and it is not level, if you put it back EXACTLY the way it came off it will be fine. KoryAk is right about not always having gadgets.

Agbay. When you absolutely positively have to tort every <bleeping> cake...accept no substitute. icon_surprised.gif

Ladies, the reason we have the itnernet and cake stores is so we can always BUY gadgets! I have done microvascular surgery and I still use my lovely gadget! icon_biggrin.gif

I resisted the Agbay for quite awhile because of the price...but when I broke down and treated myself to one for my birthday--it was worth every penny!! Agbay all the way!

I had wanted an Agbay for quite some time but because I don't do that many cakes, I couldn't justify the cost. My hubby overheard me one day talking about it and he surprised me with one on my birthday. It's the best thing since apple pie!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
