CakeSpy for Craftsy: How to Level a Cake

What does it mean to level a cake? Well, cakes don’t magically bake flat. In general, they will puff up a bit around the center, making for something of a “dome”. Leveling the cake is the process of slicing the top off of the cake so that instead of a dome, it is a flat surface.

Why level a cake? Leveling a cake has a few purposes. First, the flat surface will make for easier stacking of layers–they won’t wobble when stacked. Second, it creates a more professional look, as well as an easier surface for decorating.
