Cake Leveler

What's a cake leveler?

It is a simple tool that can be used to cut off the uneven top part of a cake so that it has a smooth surface. 

It is often used when someone is creating a multi-layer cake and they want the icing or filling between the layers to be smooth. 

The picture below is a simple cake leveling tool that was purchased from the local Wal-Mart.

The wire that actually cuts the cake is adjustable by pulling in the sides of the tool and sliding it to the desired height.

The picture below shows the tool being used.  You just saw through the cake carefully. It was for a three-layer Halloween Ghost cake we made from a recipe book.
