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 :D

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;-D! 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:)!
