Hi Leahs
I am considering purchasing the SPS for a 4 tiered cake I have coming up.
My question is: do you use the same size plate as the cake??? 8in cake with 8in plate????
What about shrinkage of the cake, will the plate show??? The cake I am doing does not have a border, only a ribbon around the bottom of each tier....

Thank you....

Yes, 8 inch plate for an 8 inch cake.

Put your cake on the cardboard (remember to punch the hole first) and ice to the edge of the cardboard.

I use ribbons on my cakes all the time. Well, fondant ribbons, but works fine. I put the ribbon on AFTER stacking.

Not sure if I understnad about the holes, but i'm guessing it should be easy to figure out.
So, if you ice to the edge of the cakeboard, then the sps won't show?
Thanks for your help. I was planning on putting them on a plate one size smaller, but notice that the smallest plate was a 6in...
So, if using satin ribbon, do you think it would show? I know fondant ribbon is thicker, so I might just have to go with fondant ribbon. I'm always looking for the easy way out... icon_wink.gif
