Holy COW is my cake heavy ! icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gificon_surprised.gif

So I used the SPS system today for the first time, I haven't transported it yet, but with many trips from the refrigerator to my island and not a single budge, I'm hoping that is a good sign for tomorrow.

I have a 4 tier 6,8,10,12 square cake, but the 8,10,12 is so darn heavy, I don't think I can carry it with the 6 on top. That's quite ok, I'm happy with transporting the top tier and then placing it on top when I get there. I just never realized how heavy the final product really is.

For all of you that use either the SPS, or SFS and transport completed cakes, do you have super muscles icon_eek.gif or a secret trick to transporting the cakes??

P.S. Thank you leahs for all of your help, from what I can see so far (knock on wood) it's going to change my world of cake making forever! Big thanks to you thumbs_up.gif

Super muscles icon_smile.gif I can carry about 200 (wilton) servings by myself.

That's why I always say, "you can stack and transport as much as you can lift." I generally only take two tiers stacked any more. DH has a bad back and I'm not super strong.

Ha! I got so carried away with stacking that I forgot about the lifting! Oh well, I'll finish when I get there, unless I can borrow some muscles before them....the boyfriend is working icon_sad.gif

I always have to have someone "lifting" with me.
