I've done it with SPS.

SFS is too expensive for me!

I do dowel for the delivery then remove it when I get to the venue. I love the SFS but make sure you get enough of a deposit to cover if it's not returned.

I keep promising to get the SPS but you know the saying...just haven't got "a round tuit"

Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me. What is the difference between the sfs and the sps? my sister is planning to buy the sfs for me because I am doing her wedding cake. Before I do I have some questions.

Is this the better system?
If she is doing a 6 8 10 12 14...which set do I buy? The starter set says the rings are 4 6 8 10 12 but wouldnt I need only a 12 in ring to put on top of a 14 inch base?
Or does that mean a 12 is to be used on top of a 12 in base?
And for the acrylic plates they sell to accompany it, the plate size is to be the same as the cake size just like a cardboard circle right?

I am sorry just dont want her to spend that kind of money and get the wrong thing! Thanks so much in advance!!

From my understand, SFS is a very expensive, metal contraption that you buy, and have to get back from clients. (Charge a deposit!) I think it keeps all pressure and weight off your cake. There is a photo of it somewhere, with a lady stand on it, to show how strong it is.
SPS is plastic, disposable, and you don't have to get it back from the client. It works great, and is what I use for clients.
I'm sure others can explain this better, but this is the basic understanding that I have. icon_smile.gif
