SPS vs Coast Tier Separator System???

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I was just browsing the Caljave Online website, and came across s support system that looks an awful lot like SPS minus that little peg on the plate... Has anyone used this? Wondering what your opinion is... Sorry, I can't post a link because the GSA gods will change it on me icon_wink.gif

I didn't look at this system, but I've used the SPS system and think one of the benefits of the system is the little peg on the plate. It really helps from one tier shifting on top of another. I've looked at other plates at a local cake shop, but keep going back to SPS because it hasn't failed me and I know some of the country roads I use in delivery need that little peg, as I deliver everything assembled, with the exception of wires or toppers, when they aren't something I've made.

That's funny... I find that the peg doesn't really do too much... I just smother the plate with BC and go... I'm wondering if anyone has actually used this system- I'm already familiar with SPS, it's the only thing I use for my tiered cakes.

I highly recommend SPS over Coast. The peg does a couple things besides the obvious; 1. it allows stacked transport with less chance of cakes shifting in transit, and 2. when stacking, it allows you to turn the tier to match patterns or put the "good side" in the front without damaging the tier below.

I vote SPS!

I looked at the system and didnt see 4 inch legs, just longer ones.

They sell both, 9" and 4" legs. They can be cut to size and sometimes even with the 4" legs I have to cut them just a tiny bit. I think getting the SPS plates through http://www.oasisupply.com/home.asp may be less expensive.

I've been buying sps from Lucks, but was interested in this because I purchase my fondant from caljava and like to combine shipping when possible...

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Send a PM message to Ramacakes. She uses the coast system and loves it. I am considering buying the coast plates and clear twisted pillars for a cake due in a couple of months. Here is one of her cakes using the plates and pillars. http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1505820/wedding-cake-multi-round-tiers

Before I had discovered CC and all of it's wonderful resources, I only knew about Wilton products. I pretty much have tried quite a few of their cake tier sets. I later found while surfing the internet( favorite thing to do), I came across cake deco.com and saw the Coast Cake tier set. At that time, I had a cake that I designed for my God Daughter's Wedding, so I gave it a try:

Later, while reading all of the wealth of info here on CC, I tried SPS cake system for a Pink and Purple Baby Shower Cake. To tell you truth they both work. With the Coast system I ordered the size the legs I needed so that the cake sat on top of the next cake without a gap. Like previously mentioned, since I never knew about that little spike, I just glued the cake with a circle of BC or RI on the plates and nothing moved. I had to travel a good distance to delivery this puppy too, me and my sister. HTH

Are you guys saying you put the cake on the separator plates directly, or is the cake on a cake board that is then put on the separator plate? I am assuming there is a cake board ... please reply asap as I am about to buy one of these systems and start baking!

I am sure they both work, I am partial to the little peg on SPS, it helps center my cakes too.. i love the little peg:). The only problem i dont like with sps but o well, is the legs have to be cut on every cake... my cakes are always 41/2 inches high. I like a higher cake so i am not able to use the precut 4 inch legs..

Yes I am legal. Now move on and bake..

Of course I love SPS.  And a lot of that love has to do with the little peg.  SPS legs come pre-cut  4", 5", 7" and 9".
