As far as I can tell, they truly don't do much of anything. I used to work in a bakery and the head decorator was very fond of using them as supports. Until her cakes all started falling.

Has your DH seen the SPS system?

SPS...SPS...SPS...SPS!

Come on everyone chant along!

Really, it's terrific! Thanks leahs for showing me the light! You'll never look at another support system again. icon_biggrin.gif

They are supposed to hold the bottom plate in place....but the pegs never seem to stay put in the holes of the plate....and DEFINITELY do not depend on them for support!

If you use pillars and plate, I must agree with the others here....use a single plate type system....several of them on the market.....where there is no bottom plate....the pillars push down through the cake and rest on the separator plate below...no other support is needed.
