AGBAY

Last year I broke down and bought an Agbay cake leveler. How have I ever done without it? It is so easy to tort and level cakes, a time saver for sure. I am very cautious when I use it because it is very sharp. My cakes for a Friday wedding are all baked, torted and leveled.

I’ve looked at the Agbay Shirley, but the cost is prohibitive for a hobby baker. Doesn’t justify the cost. And I’m really not good with “sharp”!!! My hubby doesn’t even trust me with a sharp kitchen knife.

June I try and treat myself once a year when I get my small income tax return. Last year I finally decided to spend it on the Agbay, otherwise I could never have justified spending that much money. I too am a hobbyist decorator so I can’t count on being reimbursed on the cost. An d I don’t trust myself with sharp objects either, I amputated the end on my left index finger with an electric stick blender 4 years ago. I was cleaning the blade from some cream cheese and accidentally triggered the on switch. Stupid not to have uinplugged it first and lesson learned the hard way.

Congratulations on your new toy, Shirley!! I have leveler envy :o) You and June both be careful with sharp objects!

Thanks Sandra and I promise, caution first!

Oh yes Shirley, I remember your sliced finger incident very well indeed. I have a fetish about unplugging electric items after a similar scare. I purchased Fat Daddio’s super long serrated knife, and it has worked like a dream.

I have a nice serrated edge knife too but I seem to get a straighter or more accurate cut with the Agbay. Maybe it’s just my old eyes.

I’m sure your cake is cut straighter and more accurately with the Agbay. I’ve gotten better by using techniques I’ve learned watching video’s.

I love my Agbay, they are well worth the money. They save so much time and every cake comes out perfectly level. It really saves me time when I can have up to 5-6 tiered cakes to do in a weekend. (It’s a business expense too!) I just line up all the cakes and zip, zip zip, they are all sliced twice and level. (I slice my layers twice, 4 slices per cake) There is a video on youtube on how to use the Agbay and I really keep it to mind. Once, I was rushing around when I went to rinse the blades off in the sink. I almost dropped the Agbay, then went to grab it. Luckily, I had the blades away from me and when I snatched it and only grazed my fingertips. I have been extremely cautious with it since that happened last year.
