Thank you Bashini, means alot, i am quite proud of it now if i'm honest, i think because its only my 2nd wedding cake i probaly expected it to not be very good i guess. The bride loved it and thats the main thing.

Its very ambitious a 4 tier cake if its your first time though, maybe have a dummy run at it first, and good luck. You know where i am if you want help withthings. My stress isnt over yet though i have to get it there tomorrow with a hitch and be a guest also.

Thanks for the advice nannycook and bashini. I made the cake and wedding was yesterday, all went well, a few cakes were not as level as I liked and the fondant was difficult to work with due to heat but I will learn from my mistakes.

CJs, your cake is beautiful. Well Done. thumbs_up.gif And I can see what you mean. I have an Agbay cake leveler and all my cakes are flat and level. If you are thinking of doing cakes for a long time, then its a good purchase. It is available in uk now, I think. Will check it and let you know if you like to have a look.icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Bashini, yes please I'd like to maybe get one especially if I start to do more wedding cakes and stacked cakes. No matter how stressful it was it was worth the brides look on her face when she saw the cake

Here are two links. But better to check what is cost effective - buying from here or straight from the Agbay Products in USA.

 

On the first one they say they stock them, but I cannot find any info on the second one. But you can contact them for more information.

Hi cjscakes, your cake look fab! love your cupcakes too, wish i could show you my wedding cake but haven't got a clue how to do that, i agree, its stressful making a wedding cake but the brides face says it all i think.

Bashini, i would love that leveler as got another wedding cake to make this week, can you get that from amazon?

I dont have the agbay (too much money for me as just a hobby baker) got a pme one (i think) got it in tk maxx, its sooo much easier than using a knife and quicker am so glad i got one icon_smile.gif

nannycook, the manufacturers are in US and this wasn't available in UK for a long time. One of the member's (Relznik) in BSG forum posted this and that's how I know that they are available here now. They don't have it on amazon. Why not contact the shops that I have posted and you might be able to get it before the weekend. icon_smile.gif

Thanks Bashini. I have seen these on some videos I watch for tips and tricks on cakes - never knew it was an agbay, just thought some bakers were getting very hands on and making their own equipment!!!
Will look out for it and maybe ask someone to bring me one back from the states when they visit..

Nanny cook - thanks very much. The bride was a close friend and I was attending the wedding so had a mad rush there to assemble the cake, finish piping, had a chat and cry with her then off to get ready, all in the space of around 2 hours!
