I have this cake to do next month. Yes itâs a tall one. It looks like there are separator plates and column supporting the cake. However, I want your opinion on what would be the best support system. I normally use the push in pillars. Do you think I absolutely need to use the separator plates or should I be fine with the push in pillars with the cake board resting on the pillars? Or do you think I should reconsider the entire thing and use the tiered stand that has the piece cylinder pieces down the center of the entire cake? All opinions and advice are welcome

Thanks
LL

Even though it very expensive and you would need a deposit from the bride I would use the stress free support system. It never fails. You could even call Arlene and she would help you.

Separator plates or SPS for sure.

I can envision some little kid bashing into the cake table and collapsing the whole darn thing - not worth the risk.

If this is a paying customer, then you don't want them to come back and sue you for not providing sufficient support for such a tall cake. And in this litigious society, that's exactly what would happen.

SPS can handle it!
