I'm so excited. I just got off the phone with Maureen from the Agbay place (she so nice) and she's meeting me tonight to bring me my Agbay!!! We're only 20 minutes from each other and she has to make a trip to the town next to me tonight so she offered to meet up with me instead of shipping it!!! I may have to bake a cake tonight just to try it out! icon_smile.gif

I agree you will definately love it. Maureen is a very sweet person, I spoke with her a couple of times when I got mine, great customer service!

I recently got one and was mildly disappointed, I have to be honest. I thought it would be heavier (or sturdier I should say)...it didn't look like it was worth the 200 bucks I paid for it, especially since I only bake for family.

I had buyer's remorse...
and then I tried it on actual cake...
and then I understood what all the hoopla was about icon_biggrin.gif .

Be very careful!!
That blade is very, very sharp.
I've had one for years and still love it!

She is definitely a sweetheart, she spoke to me on the phone for over 30 minutes, giving me all kinds of tips.

I'm home and it's put together...I have to say I thought it would be A LOT heavier than it is...that's fine though...can't wait to use it....I have two cakes baking in the oven...I have absolutely nothing to bake for but I can resist using it tonight...I'm so excited!

Maureen is seriously the sweetest woman ever! She used to live one town over from me but moved about 20 minutes away. She said she has some customers in my town but being 20 minutes away makes things a little harder so she asked if she could give them my number. icon_smile.gif

Isn't Maureen just the sweetest? I have to say, if my shop caught on fire and could only take one thing...it would be my Agbay. Love it love it love it!!!!

I got to use my spiffy new Agbay deluxe just last week!! I used it on Megan's wedding cake (in my pix) and I torted the 15 inch and the 12 inch cakes with it. Honestly, it cut better than I ever dreamed it could! Like a hot knife through butter -- and no tearing out the back of the cake or anything!! Amazing!! So of all the cake toys I own that is definitely one of the top three greatest purchases I've ever made! icon_biggrin.gif

Hope you've got a cake ready to tort! You're gonna love it!

Wow. I think it's quite heavy. But when I'm torting cakes, I'm torting a lot of them. The Agbay has made my caking life so much easier. I don't even want to remember the time BA (Before Agbay.)

I NEED one of those BAD my tiers are never the same size. Do you ever have to sharpen the blades after years of usage?

I went to the link that was posted which is where you order it - the cake that is torted on the right is insane. Has anyone ever tried something like that?? I'd be scared. LOL icon_redface.gif

I did a 6 layer last night. I would love to try something like they did in that pictures but I need something to move the layers without breaking them....

How did the 6 layer go? Any breaking etc? And if it was for your family, do you have pics? icon_biggrin.gif

I had one layer break but all in all it went well. Next time I will put more frosting between the layers so that the layers are more defined when cut. Here's a pic. Eveyone at work loved it icon_smile.gif
