Top Tip Friday #20 Torting & Levelling Cake Part1
This week's Top Tip comes directly from a conversation I was having with my friend Melanie from One Tier At A Time today. Every one has their preferred methods of torting (slicing the middle of the cake) and leveling (trimming the top) and she'd very much like Santa to give her an Agbay! (Apparently a Rolls Royce in the cake leveler brand range!) But hey I'm not a pro, but sure willing to give it a go - which also means as a hobbyist I could never afford an Agbay, and well I don't actually make enough cakes in a year to justify one.
So Melanie says, "But I like my cakes to be level!"
And I cheekily send her that photo pictured above "Oh I don't need an Agbay!"
She agreed, yes I am awesome. And no I don't need an Agbay. Ha ha ha! Well that is of course until the time comes that I am making cakes on a weekly basis, then maybe I might like to spoil my self! But for now I like to do it "Home Baker" style!
Which brings me to today's:
So before I let a blade anywhere near my cake I like to get it nicely chilled.
