Agbay-- A Wonderful tool for leveling cakes


Creating a beautiful cake can be challenging!
Whether you are preparing a simple layer cake or a multi-tiered cake, the success the finished overall look starts with the foundation on which it is built.
It is essential to start with a perfectly level cake to attain a beautiful and stable cake.
If the cake isn't level, problems will occur with stability such as shifting and can
negatively effect the overall look of the finished cake. Those unsightly bulges on the sides of a cake are a direct cause of uneven layers. And then, leveling a cake can be a challenge all of its own!

Until now....



One tool that has made life easier for cake decorating is the Agbay Cake Leveler.


Maureen Agbay is a cake decorator.
Watching her work and seeing her Wedding Cake business escalating, her husband, Tony, decided to come up with an easier way to level a cake. He did just that, devising a wonderful and easy system to level and torte a cake at the same time. Now the Agbay Cake Leveler has taken the struggle out of leveling a cake.
Here is how it works.
Simply adjust the blade to the height you need and tighten the knob.
On this cake, I chose to level the height and torte the cake at the same time.
In a side to side motion, slide the Agbay leveler through the cake.
( Do not place your hands
on the back side of cake to stablize.
The blades on the leveler are extremely sharp.)
Voila! Leveled and torted in one easy action!
There is also a very nifty blade cleaner that Agbay offers too.
It is wonderful for
loosening the sticky crumbs from the blades
without cutting your fingers.
When finished, just replace the tubes back over the blades
and store until you bake your next cake.

This product is well worth the investment!! You will have peace of mind knowing each layer of your next cake is level and cut down on preparation time as well.

Happy Baking!
