I am sitting here making my christmas list and am trying to think of cake related things to put on it. I have basic things (set of round pants, fondant and gumpaste tools, fondant cutters, ummm... other small things I can't think of right now). Things I have already added to my list: magic line square pans, extruder, airbrush, pasta machine. What things do YOU think I should have? icon_biggrin.gif

emiyeric you beat me to it! I saw the post and I thought Agbay, at least that's what I need Santa to bring me. I just can't justify the cost. Hobby baker, but man I want one.
If you really want stocking stuffers, sprinkles...extra spatulas fun cupcake liners...extra decorating tips, I now have 4 or 5 or my fav tips.

Big stuff, magic line pans because those add up quick. I got a whole punch of the SPS pieces last year from xmas and that was really nice because now I jsut have them on hand when I need them.

Sillywabitz, I'm a hobby baker too, and said the exact same thing to myself for months. But I used to spend such a stinking long time torting and leveling the cakes, and it's done in two seconds now ... since it's all done in my spare time, and I don't actually get paid for my time, it's made a wonderful difference to me icon_smile.gif. Absolutely worth every penny ... but I agree, it's a lot of pennies icon_wink.gif.

andpotts, There is a thread on this subject but here's the web-site for a demonstration. Sorry, I don't know how to attach the file.

Definitely an Agbay. I'm sticking with SPS - would expect anything else? I like disposable.

Alene, Thanks for posting Cake Stackers, I was not aware this was available, a great item! I have to check out their site to see how much it costs.

Confectionsofahousewife, an Agbay is the world's coolest cake leveler/torter EVER! It's made by the Agbay family, so it's only available through their Web site; there are several kinds, where you can slice the the cake once or double, and I believe you can adapt the single slicer to make it a double if you buy an attachment later. I used to use the Wilton leveler. I believe my Agbay is the single greatest thing I think I've done for myself since starting all of this, and like I said, it was not exactly cheap - but worth every penny. It takes me all of five minutes to level and torte six layers. SO NICE!!!!

People have said to get a good sized piece of PVC pipe to use as a super fondant rolling pin, cheap and effective icon_smile.gif
