Hello

I'm contemplating the idea of buying sps system for stacking my cakes since I'm starting to have order for much bigger cakes.

I'm pretty sure this is a stupid question : do you loose it when used on a cake or do you re-use it on other cakes ? And if you re-use it, do you ask for a safety deposit (sorry for the term, I have no idea how this is called in English) ? And if you don't re-use it, do you add the charge on the price of the cake ? How much does it cost for let's say a 4 tier cake (12-10-8-6) ?

Thanks in advance for your unput on this

Isabelle

I'll say I haven't used the SPS system, but want to get it so bad. I would say that you would just get a deposit to cover the SPS system in case it isn't returned, but it should be expected back to be used on other orders.
Good luck!

I have the cost built into the price of my cakes. The pieces are meant to be disposable so I don't have the customers return them.

Heck no I don't want that stuff back, it's disposable. I have reused it when it was for personal use, but no, I do not want it back. It gets worked into the price.

What they said. It is disposable so you don't want it back, and yes, definitely build the cost into the cake.
