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.
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.
i stacked a 3 tier. the square one in my pix.. 30 min. drive... used bubble tea straws.. had plenty in there and used 2 long dowel rods from top to bottom.. was very nervous on the ride.. next time . it will be sps system.. have used that before .. will again.. on one turn.. the cake actually came up off one side of the board. hello? i was scared to death.. and yes. i had it stuck down with icing on cake board. it was a really hot day .also..
Seriously, use SPS. Then you have no worries.
Glad to see your photo is back!
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.
