i'm thinking about giving the sps (cake support system) a try. I am wondering about one thing. if the plates come in set sizes--8", 10 " , etc. what do you do about shrinkage? my cakes usually shrink a fair amount . can anyone who has used this system advise me?
I use the sps system and have never had a problem with it, in fact I love it!
Shrinkage can be filled with icing, so I wouldn't worry about it. Just ice the cake to the edge of the plate and you'll be fine
Where do you buy them though? I have seen links but there are lots of cake plates and pillars on the link they give and I hate to sound dumb but I have no idea which I am suppose to be buying.
I just ordered mine from oasis supply.com Note there is not a space in that website. Do a search for sps on that site. I got the 4" GC(grecian column). The columns come in white, ivory or crystal. They come 12 to a pack. I only bought a 8 & 6" plate for now. I also ordered the 9" one's as I have a wedding cake this weekend that the bride wants the top 2 tiers up on pillars. Hope it will get here in time.
Here is the item number straight off the site.
