For those of you who have used SPS is this the correct separator plates to use? Which pillars are the correct ones? Just want to get it right since I need it next weekend. No time to make a mistake.

For a 12" cake yes, that's right. The pillars...usually called GCS4 or something to the effect of Grecian columns, 4 of them (naturally), but they come in packs of 12, I think. I don't get them from Global, so their item numbers may differ.

Great! Yes, I found the pillars also on Global Art.

I received my plates and pillars today. I ordered a plate for every tier I am doing. So if I am reading correctly.. the bottom tier you would just put on the base that is supporting the entire cake such as a cake board. Then each additional tier you put on the SPS plate. For some reason I ordered the bottom layer and should not have. Anyway, can't wait to try it out..

Yep, for example, for a 3 tier, 10, 8 and 6, you would need an 8" and a 6" plate, and a total of 8 legs.

Guess I should have researched more before buying all 3 plates! LOL I thought about leaving the top tier off until I set up. But then I have read that some deliver all tiers stacked without any issues. I have to go into a driveway with a large hill!!

Do you still put the cakes on cardboard before putting on the SPS plate? Is that the actually cake base?

There is a sticky tutorial at the beginning to the How Do I forum that shows you exactly how to use the SPS. Love mine.

Tarheelgirl, I transported a 4 tier wedding cake fully assembled using the sps system and I had to go up a very steep and winding hill. I was so nervous, but the sps system rocks, the Cake didn't move icon_smile.gif .

I am using it for the 1st time tomorrow! icon_biggrin.gif Well, I guess 3 tiers should be fine then. I just can't get past the center dowel not being there. I know it is false security but still... icon_redface.gif
