Anyone heard of or used an Agbay level??

I'm having a hard time leveling my cakes.....esp. the larger ones. I have both wilton levelers but they don't work well for me and I've tried several other ways mentioned on this site....but nothing seems to be working well to get a perfectly level, flat cake. Not usually a problem until I try to stack them. Had a slight problem w/this in the wedding cake I just did.

Well, my husband found this thing above and wants to get it for me for xmas. But it is so expensive!!! And I wouldn't be able to get the airbrush gun I've been wanting for months!!! But he said I could get the airbrush gun for mothers day.

So just wondering what you guys think.

icon_eek.gif Wow that is a lot for a cake leveler. I agree with you about the Wilton levelers. The small one is alright most of the time, but the larger ones blade is not sturdy enough to stay straight all of the time. I'm frequently getting low spots on my cakes when using it. I guess it depends on how many cakes you do and whether you think it would be more beneficial. I might have to put this on my christmas list, it's always better when you aren't paying for it yourself.

I don't have one, but I want one... It's an awesome leveler. You would be amazed at how thin you can torte a cake using it. I know people who have it and love it!! icon_lol.gif

well my husband said since i would use the leveler for EVERY cake and the airbrush some of the time....the leveler would be a better investment!!

was hoping someone has had one or heard of it though before spending that much $$ on a leveler!!

I have only read glowing reviews about the agbay. Everyone has said that it was worth every penny, a definite investment piece. It's on my wishlist as well!

I saw the demo too and I think I was more appalled at the fact that the lady threw away the top layer of cake!!!! icon_biggrin.gif That could have been used in cake balls!

Joking aside, that looks like a great tool, but it would have to be a good investment. I know my hubby wouldn't let me get that because we have no space for it in our apt and so far, I haven't had to do any real large cakes.

aupekkle - you are right...I did have a gaped mouth at her agility to toss that top layer to the side like a frisbee! icon_biggrin.gif

My DH teased me enough when I went from the small to the large Wilton leveler....so I can't imagine what he would say about that monster!! LOL! I really have no problems with the larger Wilton leveler, so I guess I'll stick with that one!

Thanks for the link...I have never seen one of those before. I would love to have one because I sometimes have trouble with my large leveler. So which one should you order the one for 149.00 or the other one for 250.00??? Or it that the cost of the whole thing??? icon_smile.gif

I'm really looking forward to hearing from someone that has actually tried this. You know how those infomercials are, they always have everything just so to make the product look it's best. Looks to me like she had an extremely dense cake and notice how she's already trimmed off the crusty bits from around the edges of the cake (those are what always screw me up). I can't say for sure, but it almost seems that the cake could already be cut and she's just running the blades through it...that, or that is one sharp blade! Ok, maybe I'm too much of a skeptic...but I'd really like to hear from someone that has one.

I will tell you about something I learned in a cake class "DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY" I am not going to even look at it.

I also bought the both levelers from wilton's and the large one was bent, when I was going to return it, I realized that I left it in the car I rented oh well.

But any way's go to walmart to the fishing isle buy fishing line that is 6 lbs. this will cost you less than $10.00 you do the math.

I have clear but I think they have colored one, I think that is easier to eye ball.

Just cut a big piece depending on your cake allow extra to pull as you arange it all around making sure it is even all the way around.

As you end up with the two ends facing you crisscross the fishing line and pull it should give you a perfect cut.

Try this before you spend lots of $$$$$ then you can buy your airbrush machine.
