I have a four tiered cake (12, 10, 8, 6, all squares) to deliver Saturday. I am using SPS for support and stacking. It is not that far for delivery (a few miles). What are your experiences? Is it best to deliver stacked or stack on site? What are some things I need to consider?
I have delivered stacked before, but it was only 2 tiers.
With SPS, stack what you can lift. For me that would be the bottom two tiers.
Please forgive me, I am still new - - - what does SPS mean?
The Single Plate Separator Plate and Pillar System takes the entire worry away when using the SPS plate system. Bakery Crafts® SPS System: Plates and Pillars.
Ugh - my computer shut down, and I wasn't finished with my post -- go figure. Anyway, there is a lot of info here in CC on stacking systems, and this is something I am only just starting to investigate myself. Good luck with your delivery and set up on Saturday
For four tiers I deliver the bottom two stacked and assemble the others on site. Here's the video I made explaining what I do. It's not complicated
Thanks, everyone! Your advice is greatly appreciated. Costumeczar, thanks for the video! Your explanation was exactly what I was thinking.
I stack on site. I would stack two tiers, but usually I just feel better about it when they're all boxed up safe and sound.
I'd stack it before delivery, but I do that for most cakes. I hate assembling on site and avoid it at all costs (other than damage to the cake that is... LOL).
