I just read your answer about fondant condensation and since I am a big fan of common sense, I am officially making you "The Cake Decorating Common Sense Queen"

Not only for that one but countless others.
You are my hero.
When I grow up... wanna be like Leah.
I am going to open a Facebook Fan Page for you... ok maybe not, but you get the concept.

Aw shucks.

::blushes::

I'm old enough and have been doing this long enough that I've made most of the mistakes and figured out a solution.

I do more lurking than commenting but I'll have to agree with you on Leah. She is one helpful lady.

When I saw the title for this thread I thought I was going to have to chew someone out for speaking badly about Leah_S. She is one of the most helpful people on this site and I have learned so much from her. I am glad you started this thread.

Hmm, I just noticed she doesn't have Member Spotlight by her name. Perhaps we should nominate her? How does one do that?

I agree! She is always super helpful and should be Member Spotlighted!

Hi Leah

I think I'm hogging ya in these forums, but thus far your brain is REALLY good picking. So, if I can get to buying that SPS system ye love so much, should I thought of buying all the equal number stuff, 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 etc to I think it goes to 18?? 3 of each and then just the ordinary pillars (not the 4 inch ones) the 9 or 12 inch??? I think those are cuttable? Am I sort of on the right path? Would love an answer if you have the time. You are exceedingly popular on these pages and for a very good reason. Wld so appreciate. I can go for the grecian look and separator stuff later - first need to get the hang of this, I think. And it really is left plates and all with the bride?

AI laid in a supply of my most popular sizes rather than getting everything. I used way more 6" and 9" plates than 14" or bigger for example. I also have on hand an assortment of legs. I use mostly the 4" legs, but always keep the multi-piece legs on hand plus a few 9" ones on hand for cutting down to odd sizes. That works for me.

Hi Leah Sorry am just answering anywhere I see your post and this is very old post 2011. Just want to let you know I now understand why South African cake decorators are so crest-fallen. The only place that will ship that system out to me is Global Sugar Art and guess what the shipping costs more than my order. Here people can charge sort of maximum R5000 - R6 000 a posh wedding cake (YES DEFINITELY) that equates to about US$500. Now that "disposable" system - mmm I reckon these brides over here ain't gonna pay for it. I am surrounded by guys, engineers and industrialists - they'll just have to start building systems for me - I REFUSE wooden dowels. It is now 2014 and the cake world is not up to date. Yes, with decorations - it's the days of Napoleon and Josephine but when it comes to structure is blegh blegh blegh. NO innovation. EVERYONE here sticks wooden dowels into cakes - I shall NOT be doing that any longer - it's time is over. I did make a ***y birthday heart cake all zebra and pink and used wooden dowels for lack of ready technology. But now I am putting all the guys to work from today. So it's lavatory pipe - ye gads? really? sorry that was hellishly offensive, but really? is PVC the answer to the rest of the world outside the goodly US? Thanks again for all your advice. I think you should start charging for it. And as for SPS - I still think they should start noticing thee.
