Yes, you do, if you level and torte. If you don't torte, you don't need it. It doesn't smush, you saw with it.

Sorry, I didn't see the post between these posts and mine, I just wanted to tie them all together ;-)

Agbay cake leveler or not?  YES.  I just ordered one.  After making my first buttercream wedding cake using a newly purchased 'Wilton' 3 tier cake stand......well.....the top tier looks lopsided in the photo.

I was sure that the cake was level, but now I'm think I must have been blind or something.

So as a hobby baker, I broke with some change and ordered an 'Agbay' leveler..  There will be a lot of work ahead - for me to make nicer cakes, but at least they will start out level - level - level.

HUMPDAY....... I feel like that camel celebrating 'humpday' at work.  The Agbay cake leveler just arrived last night.  WOOOHOOOO.   No more humpday on my cakes.

 

my icing skills will still be the same, but at least I'll get a decent start with level cakes.

I just wept with excitement looking at this lovely knife contraption. I actually need it. Now to weigh up whether I need to buy a decent camera and back screen or this lovely precise cutting tool.

I made a wedding cake 4 tiers 3 layers yesterday and became so frustrated with the Wilton levelers(I have both) and thought I am going to have to buy a Agbay after doing my research on the product. I must say also, i watched her video on the Agbay Double Blade and became very intimidated as i am unsure how to use both blades at once. I want the best and I know I want beautiful perfect level cakes. Any suggestions on which one to buy starting off? I intend to use it regularly as I have launched a business doing what I love, baking cakes.

Agbay all the way baby...love it ...now we torte and fill every cake...not just an occasional one.

2 blades are just as easy to use as one.  You just slide the blades to the height you want and cut the same as if you had one blade in, except that you end up with 3 layers of cake instead of 2.  If you don't want to use both blades on your cake you just slide the top blade up out of the way.  It is exceptionally easy and a dream to use.  Not intimidating at all when you have it in front of you.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE mine.

The bread knife is fine. At the CIA class, she taught the same trick I use when trimming pottery. Lock your elbow when slicing across. Move from that locked elbow. And start by slicing a bit, turning, slicing, turning, etc, until you are all the way through.

I can justify the price of a Kitchen Aid. I can't justify the price of the Agbay when I can do it so easily myself.
Best,
Nancy

I can't really contribute to this conversation (yet) but I just bought one today. I've wanted one for ages and I'm so so so excited to try it!!

Congratulations! you won't make another cake without it; I bought one last year and love it. Be careful though, it's very very sharp - I've had to have stiches. Don't let that put you of though, just be super careful,I can't praise it enough it's wonderful plus Maureen is a total sweetheart if you need to email her about anything.
