Ever wondered why your cakes never quite look like those in fancy bakeries? One secret is this cake leveler. During baking, cake layers tend to "crown," or rise up in the middle, and when frosted, they tend to look like a dome. The wires on this leveler can be adjusted in 1/4-inch increments to slice through the thinnest layer of cake, leaving each layer of your cake perfectly even. No more "filling in" the edges with frosting to make double-decker cakes appear level. Especially grand effects can be achieved with multilayer tortes--with square edges and seamless stacking, folks will think you shelled out the big bucks for such a fancy dessert. --Jill Lightner

This leveler worked great but only on cakes that have soft (not crusty) sides. Since the cutting "blade" is only a wire, cutting through anything too hard or crumbly is difficult. It would be nicer if instead of a wire it had a serrated blade. But if you do have a crusty cake, you can simply wrap the cake in plastic wrap and let it sit a day. This will soften the sides so that this leveler will still work. Also, keep in mind this leveler is only 10 inches wide and 2 inches high, so you may get into trouble with larger cakes. It works great for torting a cake and getting those really thin layers. It sure is a lot easier than using a knife!

It's a bit crazy how cheap this thing is considering how important it is! I couldn't live without it when making a cake. It cuts your cake layers perfectly even, quickly and easily. Such a simple product that is so essential. If you haven't bought anything besides your Wilton Student kit, I recommend this as the first thing on your list.

For those having trouble with the cake getting damaged, it's not the leveler, it's just how you're using it. It's not a serrated knife so it doesn't cut the same way.

Start by sawing slightly into the cake, then just BARELY saw back and forth with the cutting hand and slowly turn the cake through the leveler with your other hand. Cuts perfectly without damaging the cake a bit!

I purchased this item hoping that it would make leveling and torting round cakes easier. The "blade" (a simple wire) does nothing to work through a sturdier or crusty cake, and in the process of trying to get it to do so, the cake gets damaged. I had nothing but problems with this item, and had to use my trusty bread knife to repair the damage from the leveler! I am back to using my knife to level and torte my cakes, and feel stupid for wasting the money on this item. My recommendation: stick with the tried and true method. It works perfectly every time.

I like to trim my layers after freezing, but this is literally just a wire strung across the metal prongs, so it won't work for anything spongy or frozen. Its use is pretty limited, actually, and I usually resort to my big serrated knife instead.

The first leveler I had (just like this one) worked great. This one however has not help up well. One of the white pieces on the bottom came off the first week and the wire is not as sharp. I would try another brand.

I bought one of these to help with my cake leveling since I was tired of eye balling it with a knife. I should have stuck with knife. If your cake has any substance to it, it will just catch the wire and not cut at all. If it does cut, it drags and gives you a very uneven cut.

I think this is a great even cake leveler. I think it works better than slightly more expensive ones. Good for the home baker who doesn't want to spend on a professional leveler.

Simple product and it worked fine. You need to use both hands to maneuver the cake and slice at the same time. Use your passive hand to turn the cake while you hold the cutter with your dominant hand.
