I have a wedding coming up in about three weeks. Its square tiered and she wants each tier to sit different on top of the next, she doesnt want them to line up perfectly. She wants to have pole supports but short ones where gerbera daises can cover the hole/middle between each tier...where can I find poles/supporting/dowel system where the pole space between each tier is 2-4 inches? HELP! Thanks!

I have no clue where to start to look or buy! i am pretty new at all this stacking stuff!

I would try Oasis or Global Sugar Art web sites. I just ordered the sps system from Oasis and am waiting for it to arrive.

Hope this will add some insight (if not maybe contact leahs as she sent me some good instructions on how to use this stuff).

Determine how high each of your tiers will be - assume they are 3" high and you want a 1" space for your flower placement - I think you would order this:

http://globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=21160 (they have 9" ones but I'm not sure the best method to cut these - but these would probably work best since you want a few inches between the cakes).

You will also need the plates according to the size of your cakes, for example:

Again, I think it best you contact Leah as she seems to be the expert on these!

Leahs is a member on this site. If you search on SPS you will find alot of information she has posted. I'm not an expert on this system - but have used her directions for the system.
