If you don't want to watch the video here's a photo of how I level off the top of my cakes.

So that's a fantastic tip right?
But what about torting? I said I don't use any special tools right? And that is correct.
Ok so what you do need is some kitchen containers - anything that fits into the bottom of your cake pan, and is the right height needed for this trick.
(I also use a smaller cake board if my cake is having trouble balancing on the container.)
OK ha ha this is really hard for me to explain so I am just going to load a couple of photos up to help!

So after you have taken the crown off, you can torte the levels still using your pan as a guide, you just need to prop your cake up in the tin to bring it to the height required.
And there you have it! A perfectly level and torted cake without an expensive cake leveller! That's home bakers doing it for themselves right there!
