BTW...I used my cake leveler yesterday with just 1 blade and it worked wonderfully! With all of the cake stand hubabaloo I have not had time to get version 2 made where I can use more than 1 blade. Once things settle down and I get back into a routine I will get on top of that...

Yes!!! That's what I'm excited about lol!

Are the levelers for sale yet? I've checked out your page but didn't see that. I know I'll want a stand, but I haven't decided yet which one. But I could really use a nice leveler!

Nooooo...and they won't be for quite awhile, if at all. I haven't even had the second prototype done I have been so busy with the stands. Took a weekend off from that to practice decorating techniques. I plan to attempt to do a video today with prototype # 1 though before I go back to the drawing board. This one is only working with 1 blade. I want mine to have 2 and I want it to be much shorter than this one.... If the video turns out I will try to post it so I can get some feedback...

Video enclosed....Ok...let me say up front I have cake on my shirt. I do not have 8" pans at home only 8 1/2 so my cakes are thin. And yes my dogs are a PITA. But this is just a practice cake. Here is the video of me using the first leveler. It works but is still quite primitive

After throwing away 2 Wilton levelers, and not being very successful at saving for an Agbay, I am watching this with interest.

As for feedback, I don't really have anything constructive to offer. I'll wait and see what develops. I do, however, want to know what language your dog speaks. My toy fox terrier was greatly impressed and had several comments of her own to contribute in response.

As I said earlier, I'm watching with interest....

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

Nothing constructive? How about destructive? LOL...come on...I can take it! The lil yippy dog is one I rescued a few days ago and is driving me nuts! She is so darned cute tho. My roomie wants to keep her if no one answers the ad...only problem is that she can barely afford to feed herself so guess who will be paying for dog food, shots, worming???

If I didn't love you before, I do now. How refreshing to find a responsible dog owner. (And you will end up being the dog's owner.) As a former vet tech, I appreciate those who take care of their animals. So many, unfortunately, don't.

 

I have nothing destructive to say. My biggest complaint about the levelers I had was the flexing of the blade. So I'm back to the toothpick and long knife method. After two, I'm just a tad leery.

 

Still watching.

 

PS: Zorra says ruffff to your rescue.

BTW...which ones have you bought? I bought the plain wire...which just completely fell apart after 2 uses. Then I bought both Wiltons (before I had ever heard of Agbay) was looking at the Fat Daddios, but this time I did research and the reviews were not good. I love creating things and once I get an idea in my head I can't let it go until I succeed, utterly fail, or just exhaust myself trying. I wanted to build my own house once so I lived in my horse barn using a horse shower and a porta potty for 6 months and worked on it very night until I fell in bed exhausted. Of course I had a friend and his dad help me...but it was just the 3 of us and they quit on me before it was done. SO I taught my poor kid how to install toilets, showers and do tile. lol

Poor Zorra is weeping at my feet. It could have been so beautiful!

 

We sound very similar in nature, but the only time I've slept in a barn was while waiting for a cow to calve! I had a teacher in a horse husbandry class in college who said, when referring to waiting on a mare to foal, that the minute you blink it happens. All the hours of vigilance and bam! It's over when you blink.

 

I have done a lot of tile laying and remodeling by myself. I've never gone so far as to try to build my own  house, though! (Pat yourself on the back for being the last one standing. I don't like being told I can't do something either.) As to you "poor" kid....He is now considerably richer than most nowadays. What a work ethic and skill you've passed on.

 

My levelers had the blade. For some reason I thought the second purchase might work better. (I know, I know, repeating and expecting a different outcome is a sign of insanity.) It is just another reason to pile on for why I am not a Wilton advocate. (Did I say that tactfully enough?) I use a wire cheese cutter which is great, but never tried that on cake! A lot here probably like a wire cake leveler . Like I said, I have just put levelers out of my mind until I can/could scrape together money for an Agbay, based on the many positive reviews seen here. It also helps that Sharon Zambito uses one on her topsy turvy video and I saw it in action. Meanwhile I store boxes of toothpicks in my cupboard and keep my knife sharp.

Ooooh, be sure to include the puppee so we can see him and you can get dog hair in the cake!

(oops, sorry, wrong thread)

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."
