Agbay, or no Agbay?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

So the day has come...I am seriously thinking about ordering myself an Agbay this week.

 

I currently bake all of my cakes in 3" pans, which is super easy to split, fill, and call it a tier.
But, I am really wanting my tiers to be taller... at least 4". This just can't happen as is, and I have been wanting to start baking my cakes in 2" pans, then torting those layers so that I have four layers of cake, three layers of filling. I think it would slice so lovely, and really give my cakes an extra special element. 

 

I'm not sure though- this would mean changing a lot of things, and purchasing myself an Agbay.

What do you guys think? Can I get any opinions from those who own the Agbay? I am specifically looking at the standard 20" single blade Agbay.

 

Thanks in advance!

AGBAY!!!! You'll never regret it! Except maybe you'll regret not buying the 2 bladed one! That is the one I have. I love it and show it off like it is my first grandchild, and I have had it for 4 years!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Yes!!  I have the 20" single blade and love it.  i am a hobby baker and not pro, so may be less time challenged, but I have never wished I had the double blade.  It can always be purchased later.  

I'd rather be baking!

I don't ow n an agbay but it is on my list of cake things to buy....I've heard nothing but good about it. The only complaint I've ever heard about an agbay..
.If you want to call it an complaint is that the agbay works so great that you only use it for a few seconds with each use because it works so good, so that being said I'm saving up to buy a agbay!! icon_wink.gif

Love, love, love my Agbay!!!  My husband bought one for me when I retired from my previous career to start my bakery and it makes prepping cakes so much faster!

I had no idea what an agbay was...so I looked it up and watched a youtube video.  Now, I must say, that is the neatest thing since velcro on kid shoes!!  My family is quite large and I do make a lot of cakes for them...but doubt I will be getting one.  Just a bit jealous of anyone that has an agbay; and kinda sad that I won't be getting one! icon_cry.gif

I have purchased 3 levelers so far. Not happy with any of them. I already spent at least 1/2of what I would have spent on this and I'm still not happy. icon_cool.gif

LOVE my Agbay!  There is an Agbay Jr. if you only make smaller cakes.

I love my agbay but boy is it sharp! Be careful. Do not leave it out for other to touch.

I ADORE my Agbay--best money I've ever spent on a cake tool--and I thought I was pretty good at hand leveling with a long knife--NOT.

 

I bake 2" layers in my 3" pans.  They bake in the same time as a 2" pan, but come up higher and more even without the mess of collaring pans. 

 

I set the Agbay to level the tops (not usually much to cut off, though) and do all of the layers at one time.  I then re-set the blade to cut each layer in half.  I come out with a nice 4" tier.

 

Beware, though, it IS incredibly sharp!!!
