I am doing a wedding cake next weekend that will be 6-9-11-14 square. The 6 and 9 on top will be dummies. I always use SPS but have only used one cake dummy and it was vertical because I used it to make a shopping bag on top of a cake and couldn't use SPS with it.

My question - Do I need to use SPS with the dummies? If so, do I need to use the legs to insert into the dummy below? I know if I brainstorm on this some more, I can figure it out myself but I just can't seem to figure it out today for some reason!

here is what I would do.

Put down your 14" square, insert a 10" square sps plate (unless you have an 11" square), then stack the 11" square cake on top, put in a 9" sps plate/pillars, then put on your 9" dummy, and then put your 6" dummy on top of that! The dummies don't need support "in" them, but I'd err on the side of caution and support underneath the 9" dummy.

Will somebody please tell me what SPS is???? I've done searches and can't seem to find a direct explanation of what it is...I know it has something to do with stacking cakes but what? icon_redface.gif
