I'm working on my son's and his best friend grad cake for next Sunday. It will be a two tier rectangle cake. 11x15 and 9x13. I do not have the sps for this and not sure if they make it for this size. I don't have time to order it anyway. I do have to smaller square sps that I could use but won't be even in size. What should I do?
1. just use the white dowels that are hallow from michaels?
2. try and but up the two different size square sps and hope I get them even icon_confused.gif

3 Or ????

If I use the white hallow dowels with this size how far apart should I put them to support it ?

thanks for the help

Are they one layer or two layers each?

Put the 9 by 13 on a cardboard and use dowels/bubble tea straws/the hollow tubes from Michaels. If you will be transporting you may want to travel with the tiers separate and stack and finish decorating on site.
