I'm doing a friends cake & have done teirs using SPS but she's asked for a "spacer". I was planning on this construction-does it sound correct & stable?
14" on base-insert 11" SPS
11" cake on cake board-insert 6" SPS
8" cake on foamcore-doweled thru the styro to the SPS
Appreciate your thoughts!
Sounds good. I assume it will be transported fully assembled (hence the center dowel through the 8" tier and 6" spacer), otherwise the center dowel isn't mandatory after delivery.
I appreciate the affirmation! I was planning on transporting in 2 sections-the bottom thru the spacer, and then top 2 teirs. Will this balance okay without the center dowel if I finish assembly at the site?!
AYep.,you've got it.
AI would attach the stryo to the SPS plate with chocolate
It will... it's only going to overhang 1" all the way around, but use the dowel or a skewer if you'd feel better about it. Either way, I'd at least use a smear of BC or chocolate there.
Thank you both!
