I just ordered the SPS system for stacking cakes.
Anybody used them before and do you have any tips? I am going to use one at the end of the month on a tospy turvy!
I'm assuming that I use the plate to mark the cake to centre the cake, measure cake height to see that I'm at 4". cut the pillar if I am not. Attach the pillars to the plate and push it into the cake?
It seems too simple.
Use the peg in the center to mark a hole on your cake board, then use a skewer to make the hole a little bigger.
Do this before putting you cake on it lol (though if you forget, just have someone hold the cake in the air so
you can make the hole).
Take the collars off of the plate where the legs go (so the plate will sit flat on your tier), they come off pretty
easy with a straight edge knife or screw driver, just pry them off. I glue the collars to the bottom of the
cake board to raise it up so its easy to get my fingers under it.
Mark the top of the cake with the plate, put the legs on then stick the legs where your marks are and push
all the way in. Then slide your cake on and it will fall right onto the peg.
if you bake your cake in a 2 inch tall pan, it will be 4 inches, never had a problem with this!
My cakes are always straight now and really are sturdy when travelling stacked!
The Stress Free Support system is an entirely different support system-quite expensive but probably the most sturdy and secure of any systems that are produced.
