So I was reading another thread where the cake fell and SPS was mentioned. SPS is always mentioned when the cake falls, lol. Someone basically asked if the SPS was foolproof. I have never used them before. I use either pvc for larger cakes or bubble tea straws for smaller ones. I drive a wooden dowel in the center all the way down to the drum.
I have never had an accident (knock on wood) in 26 years but I am very stressed during delivery as I deliver fully stacked.
So, is SPS foolproof or has anyone ever had them fail??? That the million dollar question
AIn 20 years, never.
I'm sure some idiot has managed but only because of user error.
I'm sure others have used many more times than I have (especially Leah_S) but for the past 2 years, I've been a "convert"! With 6 kids,13 grandkids, 2 great grandkids, ?? nieces & nephews, friends getting married, as a home baker I keep pretty busy practicing! We live about 2 hrs away from everyone and learning about SPS has "saved" me from ruining anyone's party! Last wedding was 5 tiers, middle of which was a smaller foam spacer, I did take that in 2 layers but assembly at venue was a breeze-not sure how I would've done any other way (and thanks to CC'er's for the suggestions/help).
On another note....love your avatar-is that your "baby"? We have two Danes:)!
bbsmom that is my baby, my pride and joy! Her name is Maya and she turned 5 this past August. LoveLoveLove her!
