SPS instructions - Page 4

post #46 of 574
Hey leahs...apparently my PM inquiries and your responses got through despite error messages on both parts.

Thank you very much for your help with the SPS.

Zounds! I have a really big (500 servings in one cake) cake for tomorrow and I needed an 18" SPS plate. That thing is big! And takes 5 legs. I'd used a 16" plate once before and it also uses 5 legs. I also ordered a 15" plate. It's handy that they come in odd sizes.

Hi LeahS,
You are really great to offer up so much help with SPS. I'm curious about trying it but I keep wondering how it can make a big, tall cake stay together in transit. How tall would you say that little peg is? It doesn't seem big enough to hold much of anything in place.
And what you said about a center dowel being false security and ripping through a cake - have you had that happen to you?? icon_surprised.gif That is scary.

The peg is just big enough to work. icon_smile.gif
Actually it only goes into the cardboard.

I've been an SPS convert for years, so no, I haven't had the center dowel tear thru a cake. But I've read **several** stories on here of it happening. Those people use SPS now.

I've only used SPS once so I could be wrong but I think for your 6, 8, and 10 cake you only need 8 columns and one 6" plate and one 8" plate, you can just put the 10" on a cake circle and put on your cake board as usual.

nutty, remember that SPS is designed to be disposable. If youre selling your cakes, build the costs of the materials into the cost of the cake. If it's for family or friends, then get your stuff back. It is reusable for a couple of cakes, usually.

Can I buy the pillars and plates at hobby lobby or michaels or my local cake supply store? or are the ones on sugarcraft the only ones that work well?

SPS is manufacturered and sold by BakeryCrafts. You can purchase it online from Oasis Supply and GSA. A few local cake supplies stores carry it. I would not think that craft stores such as HL or Michaels would carry this product.

Please note that SPS is very different from the hidden pillars by Wilton.
