hi, I have been doing cakes for a while now, and I got a request for a wedding cake, simple buttercream but it will be 4 tiered 14, 12, 10, 8 problem is I have only done 2 tiers and feel a bit scared about the more tiers, I have been looking on you tube for tutorials and came across so has anyone here tried them, I am almost convinced of buying the system lol, so please someone let me know if it really works icon_smile.gif

There is an sps system also which is cheaper. There is a whole topic on this system I will see if I can find it and post to you.

Could not find the posts about the SPS system but if you go to Bakery Craft they sell the SPS system. Hope that helps.

I found it intimidating at first too. I prepared each tier while it was on the table. Then, you just stack it into place and fix the icing. Practice once and you will see it is not difficult.

Hey Beenie, maybe this is what you were looking for? It's Leah's tutorial on SPS. It's a sticky in the cake decorating forum.

I find that if you click on the "X" on the second attachment window, the tutorial will open a new tab in your browser. I'd definitely use SPS if doing more than 2 tiers, but I'm not familiar with the other system you mentioned.
