I will be making a 4 tier wedding cake- 6,9,12 and 15. I've stacked a 3 tier 6,9 and 12 with them that traveled 1hr. in a car.
Can they hold up on a 4 tier cake???

Look into SPS. its not the tiers, its the drive.

Yes, they can, BUT just like Jentreu said, it may be the drive that gets the cake.

isn't it possible to transport the cake in 2 parts?

I would stack the bottom 2 and stack the others once you get there... that's a long drive to chance it. Good luck. icon_wink.gif

Yes, thats what I would also do. If you have any piping on the base to do, you only have to do on the base of one tier when you finish assembling it.

Seriously, use SPS. Then you have no worries.

If I use the SPS support system should I still wait to stack the cake when I get to the reception site?
Thanks for all of the suggestions so far.
