Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Did I say thank you? I delivered a three tier wedding cake, fully decorated this morning. I used the SPS system and that cake didn't budge!
I usually assemble my cakes on site and have always hated people looking over my shoulder. On my nephew's cake I forgot to put leaves on the roses! I didn't realize it until I printed out pictures.
On this cake, I was able to put it all together and take my time attaching the flowers and leaves and didn't forget a thing.
When my husband arrived home last night, he came into the kitchen, looked at the cake and his face filled with terror! icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif He was totally freaked out that it was all decorated and assembled. I told him Leahs said it would be fine, SPS will hold it all together. icon_smile.gif
This morning, I found him staring at the cake. I thought he was going to say how pretty it was. He looked up at me and said he was really afraid of carrying it. icon_eek.gif I told him again that Leahs has said again and again it was meant to be delivered all assembled. icon_smile.gif
He carried it out to the car and rode in the back seat watching it the entire way. He made me drive because he didn't want to be held responsible if something happened to the cake. No worries, Leahs said it would be OK!
Well, we arrived at the country club all in one piece without anything to fix. Repair kit stayed in the car (could have left it home) and put the cake on the cake table, took pictures and left. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

So, thank you again Leahs for educating us all on SPS. It is inexpensive, easy to use and helps take a lot of stress out of delivering tiered cakes! icon_smile.gif
Also a big thumbs up for Global Sugar Art, their service is amazing! (They carry SPS in stock!)

Your cake is stunning!! all those flowers, no wonder your husband was scared of moving that cake............ if that is the first time making poinsettias, then you did a brilliant bit of work.

PS, now that you're in the SPS choir, you must sing out loud and proud.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful compliments and responses. I have never done a poinsettia before. Each of the petals and leaves are on individual wires. I don't know if I would be the best person to do a tutorial on the poinsettia as I had to improvise with my own method of getting the wire in the petal.

Leahs, I am happy to have done you proud! I will gladly join the SPS chior! No more dowels for me, what a timesaver this system is. It also puts your mind at ease about transporting a tiered, decorated cake. I don't think hubby will sit in the back seat next time. He might even drive!
