SPS instructions - Page 2

post #16 of 574
Hey leah, I guess I must be dense this week. If I use the foam core instead of the cardboard, why would I lose .5 inch? The columns don't actually go into the cardboard right? They just rest on the board below. So I think the cake would be 4.5" right? That is what I was going for...the extra height without extra cake....

Thank you so much. Julia

Hi Everyone! Leahs asked me to let everyone know (especially my fellow ontarians and canadians) that a bakery supplier in toronto called L&M bakery supplies can order the bakery craft SPS products and they ship accross canada.

I placed my order for 3 round and 3 square and 24 pillars and the price was approx $30 CDN. They have to order it in. It took a couple weeks to get to T.O. and then she shipped it to me overnight. You can go to L&M to pick up your order if you are local enough but their hours are only 9-4:30 monday to friday.

They were really nice to deal with. I would recommend ordering from them if you are in canada and and want to avoid giant minimum international orders or hate paying duties when getting stuff in from the US. Just remember it does take about 3 weeks to get to you.

well, that was a big "duh."

Yes, of course the SPS legs rest on top of the cardboard/foamcore. It occured to me a couple of hours after I posted that, that it was wrong. Yes, your cake woud still be 4" tall, but appear to be 4.5" tall due to the foamcore.

thanks, this is great! The only thing that worries me is that I never seem to get a 4 inch cake icon_sad.gif !

I had another "duh" tonight as I was gathering up SPS supplies. If your tiers are 5" tall, then just use the multipiece legs, discarding all the extensions.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the file. I'm having a lot of issues downloading pictures from CC over the last couple of weeks. Right click and choose Open in New Window/Open in New Tab.

Does the SPS system make delivering cakes completely assembled possible? Any problems?

Okay, I have two questions, forgive me if they aren't the brightest questions. icon_smile.gif

1) Do the legs lock onto the lower plate or just rest on it?

2) do you get this back from customers, or is it just something they toss when done with it? Thanks!! icon_smile.gif

The legs sit on the bottom plate.
It's disposable. I charge my customers an "equipment charge". I jsut say, "without this equipment, your cake will fall down, so you have to buy it." Never an argument!

Leah, I just need to clarify something? This is NOT the same thing as the Wilton hidden pillars is it? I had the owner of a cake supply store tell me it was.

Also, I haven't tried torting yet, and different recipes I've tried come out different sizes once baked, so I was wondering if I can adjust with icing if they are a bit too short, or is that just a truly dumb question??! Thanks!

No, No a thousand times no!!

W's hidden pillars are all wiggly in the plate. SPS practically locks into place. In fact once you get the legs on the plate, you'll have a hard time pulling them opff the plate. You can build up with a little icing, or you can trim the legs, but the goal is to make your cake tier 4" tall.

Make SURE you order the GC-4S if you're planning a regular stacked cake with 4" tiers.

Order the multipiece legs if your cake has 5" tiers, or you are planning a cake with separations.

It's always good to have a package of the 9" pillars in the back of the closet, just in case you have to cut a different length.

And it's always a good idea to maximize your shipping costs. If you have cakes over the next few months, order all your supplies at once, since a lot of places have minimum shipping charges.

Just sayin'.
