SPS question gang,
I use sps and havent had issues but i have noticed i am always way above 4 inches on my cakes after baking and icing and fondant, more like 5..could that cause my cakes to not be level or unstable? I did notice on my last cake that it kinda sunk in a tad on the base, but i just thot it was my imagination..most poeple comment on here about not getting to 4 inches but i am the opposite..do i need to worry?
Should i cut the cake before decor to 4 inches exactly? or does it matter
Just buy the multipiece legs...they are 5", plus (2) 2" pieces.
Or level it off more, I level each layer to about 1 13/16" , once I fill and ice and let the cake settle, the cake itself is just a hair under 4" but then I ice it to be about 4 1/8" so the plate will settle into the icing some.
I always order the 9" columns and then use my hacksaw on the scored areas to cut them down to the exact height I need for my cake. My cakes are the same, rarely are they only 4" in height. Much closer to 5". I just like them that way (personal preference). This way I can adjust to the height of my tiers and not have to cut away so much cake.
As vdr noted, SPS comes pre-cut in 5" legs. If your cakes are always 5" tall, then just order those. EASY.
I just tried to order the 5" but couldn't find them. The 9" work and the notches make them easy to cut all the same size.
yes can you tell me where you buy the 5 inch ones? thanks so much!
I would like to know also! Please
wonder if this is how you get the 5"
WHITEMulti Piece Column 9 inch
consist of 5" Grecian scored section, two 2" extension pieces and collar.
4 columns are required per plate set-up
The 5" legs, as noted and explained above, the 5" legs come in the multi-piece set. Buy that set and you will receive a dozen 5" legs and two dozen 2" extensions. Throw out the extensions and use the 5" legs.
