Great idea cakefanatic! I have both Wilton levelers and don't have problems anymore. In the beginning, it was hard but now I slice through a cake just as easy as the lady on the demo. I also find a large bread knife works really well for me. I must admit though, that is one cool leveler. icon_cool.gif

I have one. It is the best investment I have made along with my edible art printer. This thing is a true machine!!!! I can tort a 2 inch cake 7 times without a tear! I could have done more but didn't want to waste another cake messing around. It cuts through the toughest cake like butter and the blade is so tight if you pluck it it sounds like a guitar string. The blade does not sway or move at all so all cuts are to a T. The frame and all the pieces are top quality. Very well made and I believe when I spoke to the owner she did mention thay are all hand made. If you can afford it it is a great investment. I love mine and the time it takes away from torting and leveling is amazing. And no I do not own the company! icon_biggrin.gif

When I was introduced to the fishing line I was like what are you talking about...., especially when you have to cut off the top that rises in the pan so if it don't rise as much it gets kind of difficult but only for that part.

I sometimes just flip it over and just eye ball it to cut off the top. If I wouldn't of attended this cake class given in the cake supply/bakery shop I never would have learned this technique.

I hope this help's.

thanks for the link. Since I plan on starting my business soon....meeting w/the contractors next week icon_biggrin.gif ). I think this may be a good investment. I've tried the fishing line method and it cut the cake fine....but I couldn't get it even.

I am interested in hearing about the gadget Stephanie214 uses though. It looks interesting!!

dandelion and pinkbunny,

I posted the directions in the general forum. The title is "Cute little gadget".

It is so easy to use.

If you can't find the title, pm me and I will explain it to you.

If you invest in the agbay, you'll wonder what you ever did without it. I use mine on every cake and it cuts though everything like butter. I have the one blade model, but the two blade is really cool, but i really couldn't justify the expense of the extra blade, as i can just not be lazy and adjust the one bladed one to do the job. Its easy to use and very sharp (watch your fingers)

No i don't own the company, just a happy customer.

For those of you who have this:
Can you cut through sponge cake or joconde or angel food cake without any problems? What about really moist cakes?

It looks like it would work really well for dense cakes, so I wonder how it works with the aforementioned types? Is it really an 'all-rounder'?

The blade is so sharpe it will go through anything. I have had it through tough and moist.

I was watching Alton Brown decorate a cake and he used unwaxed dental floss to torte a cake. Has anybody tried this? I do like the leveler, it looks pretty sweet!

DANG that's expensive for a single-use tool. Looks neat though. icon_biggrin.gif
