Do you put anything on the plate to anchor the cardboard round?

I know that little nib holds the cardboard, but would a little RI or melted chocolate help?

I've tried SPS and love it (thanks Leahs!) but I've never had to travel more than a few miles with it. This weekend I have to drive 1/2 hr in traffic.

I've used a smear of buttercream or carpet tape, both worked well, but buttercream lets you move it a bit after. And I don't know if carpet tape would no longer stick if it gets moist.

I've never thought to glue the cardboard to the plate with anything. I suppose it could add another layer of protection but I'm wondering if it's necessary? (This is from a person who keeps forgetting to poke the hole for the little sticking up nib so adding another thing to do might just be beyond me! lol)

I'm not a pro so I'm not doing this all the time. I wonder if those who do (such as Leahs or Indydebi) glue theirs down. If there were to be an issue I'm sure someone like that would have found it by now.

I always add a dab of buttercream to the top and bottom of the sps.

Buttercream or RI would work.

I can't remember who, but someone on CC said, if you use RI to secure your cake - it's not going anywhere. And I have found that to be true!
