You only need the multipiece set if you have either a) a cake with separations or b) a tier than is 5" or 7" tall. Those are the only two reason to use the multipiece set.

Thanks for all the great info!

Would this be one of those things I would ask to have back after the event? Like what would be covered in an equipment deposit? Or should I just add the cost of this into the cake cost and never see it again lol?

It's meant to be disposable, so add the cost to the price of the cake.

Ordered on Thursday for a Monday cake? I hope you paid for expedited shipping. Since your cake needs to be finished Sunday night and some delivery companies don't deliver on Saturday, you would have had to pay for overnight shipping.

I honestly don't have a clue what you've got, unless you ordered the multi-piece legs. Those are generally for cakes with separations or, I suppose, really tall cakes. I use the GC-4s. They come in a bag of 12 pieces, each one 4" in length.


And second. I use 1/2 foam core for the base of my layers. Do you think that it matters if I use that? I know the center notch won't go all the way through, but it should lodge in there well enough right?

Well, since the legs only give you 4" of height, and you're devoting 1/2" of that to foamcore, your cake could only be 3.5" tall. Remember with SPS your cardboard is sitting on a sturdy plastic plate. Really, truly, a regular cake carboard will be fine. The extra sturdiness you wanted when using dowels, and your decision to use the foamcore, just isn't needed with SPS. You've already got the sturdiness of the plasticplate and leg assembly. That thing isn't going anywhere. You just don't need the foamcore.


Also, do you push the plate all the way down before you put the next layer on OR do you leave it up a bit so it will be push down by the weight of the cake?

I do push the plate and leg assembly all the way in, but that's jsut personal choice. No real reason, and either way should be fine.



are the GC 4's that you speak of the Grecian Columns 4"

Bakery crafts = yes.
GC-4s = Grecian Columns, 4" tall. The manufacturer is pretty straightforward with the name.

Just a couple of questions...btw Leah, thanks for posting these directions.

1.) Where do you buy the sps materials?

2.) Wilton suggests driving a dowel rod through the center of the cakes with the use of the cardboard cake boards. I've seen it done also by the pros on shows like Amazing Wedding Cakes but they use a wooden like cake board. Can you do this with sps? The reason I'm asking is that I would be a little afraid to move a cake around having only secured it to the (plastic) board with icing.
