Thanks to all of the brilliance tossed about here (esp Leahs and her love of SPS!), I managed to pull off my first official wedding cake! Hooray! icon_biggrin.gif Really, I couldn't have done it without the tips, advice, and general good vibes that waft from CC, so thank you all!

It looks very nice. You are braver than me. I won't try wedding cakes. I fear bridzilla like the plague.

Your cake looks great, much better than mine turned out. I am getting ready to post about my first wedding cake and get some tips for next time.

So, how is the SPS? Is it very expensive, and where do I find it? I'm getting ready to do my first wedding cake as well, and need all the tips I can get!

Beautiful cake, by the way!!!

Toodles I think you are confusing SPS with SFS. SPS is cheap! SFS is expensive! SPS is plastic and disposable. SFS is metal and you have to get a deposit and have it returned.

Gorgeous cake!

Seriously, Leahs, you give wonderful advice on the SPS system. I have saved a very detailed post you made on the topic, and used it when I did MY first wedding cake last weekend. You get asked so much...is there any way to just make the post into an article? It's a great post.

I'd love to make the attachment I send out to everyone who asks, into an article, but I have no idea how to do that. I've PM'd Jackie twice but never got a response. If you know how to get it done, please tell!!

Sweetjan, just PM me with your email address and I'll send you the info.
