I've been 'lurking' around these forums for awhile, and I want to come out of the shadows to thank all of you. Last weekend I accomplished my first stacked cake - a 4 tier. I'm a pastry chef, but I have had little experience with stacked cakes. I opened my own small pastry business early this year. I've been avoiding stacked/wedding cakes because I lacked experience and have not had the time to practice. Finally, after turning down many requests, I decided to dive in. It went very well - only because of the invaluable advice I gathered from everyone. It is amazing and honorable that you all freely share business tips - this is not common in other industries.
Congratulations!!! What system did you end up using?? I just ordered the SPS yesterday to have on hand. I've never done it either and I'm dying to try
I did use the SPS. It seemed like a no-brainer after reading all of the comments about it. I was too scared about everything to take any chances! It was completely stable, just like everyone said.
do you have a pic? We would love to see it!
