Make sure you wait until the cake has cooled...at least one hour before leveling.
Option1: Using a Serrated Knife
Place the cake on a cake board, then place the board on a cake stand. While slowly rotating the cake stand, move the knife back and forth across the top of cake
in a sawing motion to remove the crown. Try to keep the knife level as you cut.
Option 2: Using a Cake Leveler
Place the cake on a cake board. Position the ends of the cutting wire (or feet on the large cake leveler) into the notches at the desired height. With
legs standing on the work surface, cut into the crusted edge using an easy sawing motion, then proceed by gently gliding wire through the cake.

This is the biggest mess i've ever tryed to use..definately not worth the money...they make it soynd like matching up the 3 are easy--they do not go together with any ease-you get two and then the third won't fit or others slip out--big and bulky for small hands-then the pladtic screw on wouldn't align properly...the pastic isn't hard but a soft pkastic which again moves and won't screw on correctly- which in turn has frosting going everywhere- out the tip, between the bag and the couplers---bought this for a graduation project and it ended up not workibg therefore the cupcakes were not anywhere as nice as i wanted to end up with...very dissatisfied!!

worked a treat for me - super easy and gorgeous looking results. Do NOT put the icing in until you have the whole thing put together, or you'll end up in a sugary sticky mess. I strongly suggest using the Wilton Icing Bag Ties (the rubbery purple ones) - One for each bag and one to tie them all together. They use 3x 16 inch bags so people with big hands like me will have no problem, but I can see how they'd be an issue for someone with smaller hands.

More than just a leveler!I use this, along with the Cake Dividing Chart to cut perfectly even slices of cheesecake. It doesn't cut all the way to the bottom, but paired with a large, sharp knife to cut down to the board, I have beautifully even slices.
