Some cakes it seems might have to be transported assembled... I'm thinking of my basketweave cake at my own wedding, for example. What's the safest way to do this? Do they make something to hold the cake safely in place?

First, Congrats
B: How big is your cake? if it is just a 2 or 3 tier stacked cake you can put a dowel thru it all and it should be fine. But if it is a big cake or you are using seperators then take each layer and just assemble at the reception location.

Oh.. I must add... I haven't done a wedding yet but am anxiously waiting.. and these are just the tips that I have learned from being here on CC. icon_lol.gif

good luck!!

Easy answer - use SPS to stack the cake. It's made for assembling and then transporting. If you want directions with pictures, just PM me with your email address.

SPS (not to be confused with SFS) is easy to use, cheap and disposable. It's made by BakeryCrafts and can be purchased thru Global Sugar Arts or Oasis.

Leahs, this is probably a dumb question, but what is SPS. I am wondering the same thing as I have my 1st wedding in a few weeks, 17, 14, 7" stacked, and wondering if I should assemble on site.

It's a system to support your cake. Send me a PM with your email addy and I'll send you illustrated instructions. You'll be a believer in no time!
