I have the HARDEST time leveling cakes. I've been thinking about purchasing a cake leveler from Wilton but it feels like a comp out. Any advice?

APress them down slightly after they come out of the oven while they're still in the pan. Use a clean towel or paper towel.

That's a great tip, I'm thinking of buying the agbay bc I've had enough trying and trying to tort perfectly as the cake gets smaller and smaller.........

AIt's worth the investment. It's fast and easy. I didn't want to give in for the longest so I kept trying to level cakes by hand and destroying them lol. I still attempt it from time to time with cakes for the house. But for business where for me it's important to get that height the agbay is where it's at

AOP, If you're only trying to level the cakes and you don't tort ...you probably don't need it . The tips you got would be fine.

If you plan on torting your cakes as I do, then an agbay is really one to consider. Don't waste your money on Wilton though. It would be easier to just do it by hand

AI am known for my up level cakes. I think I might just go with that. Lol. The Wilton leveler does not work. If I were selling cakes, I would invest in an agbay
