Hello,

I use sps only. I have a cake coming up and there will be a two inch tier in the mix.

12" regular 4" height
11" half tier 2"
10" regular 4"...and so on.

Should I get a longer column and put it through the 12" and 11" cake?

What is normally done in situations like that? Will I have to buy a saw and cut the columns?

Thanks

I wouldn't, simply because you're suppose to use supports for every 4" of cake height, and it's more difficult to plate 6" tall slices.

SO I guess I will use SPS on every tier except for the 10" cake since the 11" will be short.

I will stick to wooden dowels & bubble tea straws for those.

Thanks

Just use a saw and cut down a SPS leg to 2". I do that whenever I need a short leg. NOTHING separates me from SPS!

I keep a set of 9" legs on hand for cutting to weird heights.
