Hello! I've been considering getting an Agbay and as I was watching the demo videos on their website, it looks like the cake they're using is really dense. What kind of recipes work best with this tool? I've used the WASC recipe and cut my own, but it seems it may be too fragile to torte with many layers.
I feel like I'm not making sense..lol! I need more coffee! Anyway, please share your feedback.
Type of cake makes absolutely no difference. The Agbay works with any thing. Even cakes with nuts. It will slice right thru them.
I love my agbay. I got it a few months ago. I work with a lot of soft cakes and I've had no problems. In fact many of the cakes have been eggless. I always torte/level cold cakes. Not sure if that makes a difference.
AI love my Agbay! Leveling & torting a cake is so easy! I am just a hobby baker & it isn't inexpensive so I asked my whole family to chip in & buy it for my birthday.
That's what makes the agbay so awesome, you don't have to use special cakes. I use it on chiffons and sponges without a problem.
Thanks everyone! Now to save the money for one.... ;)
I bake WASC cakes and use my Agbay. You can cut layers less than a 1/2" thick, if you want to. The cakes aren't fragile, by any means. In order to cut down on crumbs, I often do the cutting when the cakes are only partially defrosted and that makes for very quick & clean cuts.
