I have a rather large 4 tier cake coming up and the bottom 24" pan barely (not quite) fits in my oven. Can I just use smaller cakes and stick them together for the base?

Really my question is this:
I know I can do it with smaller combined cakes BUT will it be sturdy enough to handle the heavy 3 tiers on top? I am using the SPS system to assemble it.

p.s. yes, a larger oven is in the works....lol

If your pan has a flat ledge around outer top edge, you can bend it upwards and straighten it out with the rest of the pan to fit in the oven better. If it almost fits, sometimes that's all it needs to allow the door to close.

Yes, it's the support system that allows this... the cake won't go anywhere.
