I am doing my first wedding cake in a looooong time on May 2. It will be a 4-tier, 15", 12", 9", 6", and because of its design it will have to be delivered fully assembled. And did I mention I'm delivering it 70 miles? So I've taken the plunge and ordered SPS.

Leah,

1. Have you ever carried one this size? Can I do it? Can DH do it?

2. You don't wrap the cardboard rounds in anything, is that correct? Do you not have trouble with them getting greasy/soggy?

Thank you! I'm excited to try it!

I went to oasis.com and it wasn't a cake supply site. I think the right one is oasisupply; I found the SPS system there. (Yes, there does seem to be one "s" missing, but that's correct.)

I'm confused. Is a center dowel used with this system? I looked through the instructions, but I don't see a hole for the dowel. I'm sure I'm just missing something here. Thanks!

So I just made a 5 tier cake and I use IMBC. When I stacked them my 14" my BC cracked and kept cracking as I continued to stack. Any suggestions? As you can imagine I was freaking out! It did turn out okay...haven't heard from the bride.

LeahS - I purchased SPS! And I've read thru the tutorial you made (thank you so much btw). I'm making a 6",8",10", 12" square cake. So I actually bought SPS for the 6",8",10", and 12". I was just looking at it, and based on everything, I'm just kind of assuming that I don't actually use the 12" plate. So for the 12" inch cake, do I just put that on a regular board? And then start working with the 10" plate and legs?

Thank you so much!

Cyls, You've got it. You don't need that 12" SPS plate (yet.) You'll use it on another cake, I'm sure.

I just a shipment of SPS supplies in yesterday also. Dozens and dozens of plates and bags of legs. icon_smile.gif

Thanks Leahs! I just wanted to make sure that I was doing it right. And I'll definitely use the extra plate sometime!

A couple quick questions here....I'm thinking of trying this SPS for a wedding cake (first I've ever officially done).

1. Once I place the cake (with a carboard under it) onto the separator plate, there will be no room in between cakes right? All the plastic plate and carboard circle will be covered up when I add a border? Never having used it, it seems like the plastic plate + cardboard would be a lot of space to cover up. ????

2. Also, do you recommend coating the bottom of the separator plate with anything so that icing doesn't stick to it when they are serving it at the wedding? In the past I have just put a little powdered sugar on the bottom of a wax paper coated cardboard circle. Is that the best thing?

3. Last question! Do you need to give instructions to anyone about disassembling the sps when they are cutting the cake at the reception?

Thanks for answers in advance!
