Do you subtract serving #'s from cakes you use the SPS system with?

I find the individual "legs" very wide and think that it wastes alot of cake when all 4 are inserted (especially with samller "8" cakes)

I love the stability of the SPS system but do not want to short guests of cake!

What other systems or support "legs" do you use -are popsicle sticks or straws sturdy enough?- what type of wooden dowels do you recommend?

Thank You!

I find bubble tea straws to be much sturdier than dowels since the hollow part fills with cake and is less likely to move around. I can get into the physics of it but i'll leave that alone for now icon_smile.gif

I never thought of that (the serving thing) but probably wouldnt. Ive taken cakes to work using the SPS and didnt notice a whole lot of cake missing (10 and 8 in).
