I have a cake leveler that I have always disliked, and now the blade is kinda loose and the cakes never come out level any more. I like to tort and fill and I am frustrated. Before I buy another, or try another way, I thought I would ask you lovely people. What do you use? How do you tort your cakes?
You're going to get a lot of "Agbay" responses, lols. Just look at this post from 3 weeks ago about Cake Levelers: http://www.cakecentral.com/t/779406/cake-levelers
and according to this thread, don't buy a wilton one: http://www.cakecentral.com/t/721901/i-just-wasted-20-on-the-ultimate-cake-leveler
Frankly, if I'm making a cake (which is rare) I use my large bread knife, lols :)
Yes, I'm an Agbay believer. They are pricey but heavy duty and you get a good, clean cut every time. After struggling with other brands with flimsy cutting wires, etc. and cutting myself pretty good with a large knife, I broke down and spent the money for the Agbay. Never have regretted it. If you tort a lot of cakes, it is well worth the investment.
I like knowing that my customers cut into their cake and all the layers are beautifully even.
Definitely the Agbay... Best money you'll ever spend, next to your Kitchenaid... :)
Thank you all SOOOO much! I must admit that I gulped a bit when I saw the price of the Agbay, but good tools ARE expensive. I have the Wilson Ultimate and it stinks. I´ve been working with it for over 3 years and it dips in the middle something terrible! I´ve been supplementing with an old thin bread knife, but the handle broke last week, boo hoo! Looks like I need to tighten up the old belt and not be so cheap, lol!
