Hello.

I was just wondering if you use just one layer of cardboard under your cakes when using the sps system or 2 layers?

Thank you!

I just started usig this system and love it! I have only used a single cake board. You get support from the sps plate. If for some reason you wanted to use more than one be sure to glue them together otherwise your cake will slide and that is one thing that this system is great at preventing. Just my opinion and maybe someone else has another view...but I would just stick to a single board.

This will actually be my first use of the system. I'm looking forward to it since I have read so many great things about it. My usual place was out of the coated cardboards so I guess it would be best to cover them this time wil press and seal or something of the sort.

I just purchased this system and plan on using it this weekend. One question that I didn't find the answer to: Do you cover your cardboard circles with something like butcher paper to keep the cake grease from weakening your cardboard?

No, absolutely NO need to cover the cake boards at all. They will be sitting on a plastic SPS plate.

Leah, thanks for sharing all of this information. I am sorry if this question was already asked but is the SPS system that you are talking the Bakery Crafts on global sugar art?

I just poke the boards with the sps plate before I put the cake on them, then you can make sure that is centered exactly where you want. HTH

The peg on the plate has to go into a hole in the cardboard. Otherwise the cardboard won't sit flush on the plate.

leah_s,

Leah- I sent u an email but just in case u ck here first icon_biggrin.gifI stacked my cakes and it was so late when I was doing it that I forgot to put icing on the plates. Should I lift up each tier and squeeze some icing in there?? Help! The cake is due today! icon_cry.gif
Thanks

I did that the first time I used the system too. I was just extra careful moving it and deliverimg it and it was fine. It won't be as stable as it could be....but depending on the type of cake design you have you might be better to leave it. If it's easy to lift without causing more grief than it's worth then lift the tiers. I could be way off here and Leah is definitely the guru when it comes to this.

I got a reply from her and she said it should be fine icon_biggrin.gifit was a square 3 tiered cake so I didn't really feel like fooling with it. It is also buttercream- which I honestly hate working with bc it sees every imperfection icon_smile.gif

Don't see why not. Anything you can do with dowels can be done better with SPS.

Disclaimer - I haven't actually done it.

I definitely think I would need some sort of center support....might have to get out the power tools! icon_smile.gif
