Cool trick to level cakes!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So I recently bought an Agbay (finally!) and can't wait to use it!!

 

However, I just came across this cool trick right now, to level cakes and was wondering if anyone tried this?

 

She has used sewing hoops to hold the cake in place and then a serrated knife to saw it across! Hope this helps out someone, and if someone has tried it, let us know if it works!!

Very clever.  I love the creativity of people.  I never would have thought of that.  Very neat.

Thank you :) I am going to assemble it right now and try it out! 

 

And if anyone tries this hoop technique, please let us know how it worked!!

Great idea but for a different reason.  I have an AGBAY and wouldn't trade it for the world but I've often wondered if I've centered my cakes properly and evenly after torting it.  By placing a hoop over the cake I'll be better able to tell if I got it right.  I've often thought that it would be cool if someone offered a 4" tall cake tunnel or bottomless and topless metal tube you could pop your layers and fillings into to check for accuracy on the sides.  Sometimes you eyeballs seem to be taking a vacation.
