Hi my fellow CC'ers:

Hubby came home today with what I have been buggin' him about for the last 2 weeks... a laser leveler!!!... Now I know I learned about using it here at cc... but I can't find the post that explained how to use it... I have no idea how to make it work or how it will help me to have a leveled cake...

If anyone remembers and/or knows how to use it or the post that explained it... I would really really appreciate it very much....

Well, it's not a leveler, its a level. I place mine on an elevated surface and project a horizontal line around the top of the tier and then use a spatula to scrap off the icing that's above the line. That gives an even top edge.

I have also used it to project a vertical line onto a cake for the placement of stripes or dots.

u r awesome!!!! (sorry about the leveler hehehe) I didn't think about that... I have to add piped RI dots to all sides of this cake and that will make it so much easier for me... thanks !!!

Get a small cheap one. Whatever's on sale. Mine was $9.99.

I also use mine for projecting a straight line when writing on the cake. Works great when stacking cakes to see that you have everything level before icing the cake too.
