so far i havn't really had any probs with stacking but i have only done smaller 3 tier cakes. now i have a wedding cake to feed 400. i guessed it will need to be 6-7 tiers and i have NO clue how to make that much cake hold up! i have only used wooden dowels and some newer plastic dowels, but i don't think that will be sturdy enough for that large of a cake

any ideas?

I would definitely use the sps system. I used it for my first big cake and it worked great.( it's in my pics- becky's wedding ) hth thumbs_up.gif

is that the wilton stacking kit with the tier plates and stand things to fo under them? if so, i do you have to stack the layers to fit to the system because if it's what i'm thinking of, they arn't adjustable.

In the name of all things holy, please do not think that SPS has anything to do with Wilton.


Please read the sticky at the top of this Forum. As soon as the attachments starts working of course.
