I had my doubts, but that little peg does work. I'm not happy with how the cake looks. I hate it, but that is my fault. The stacking system worked like a charm. My only problem was getting the top tier on. This was not my fault. When I was trying to find that little peg my son came in to ask me a question. Everyone should know not to ask me dumb questions when I am in the middle of cake decorating. My fingers went into the icing, but I was able to some what fix the big finger imprints I made. Anyway the cake is the 3 tier on my site. Ugly, but it made a 30 minute drive so I'm happy.
It's nice to hear of your successful experience. Leah_S would be so proud of you for taking the plunge!
