Hoping someone can help me with the ordering of the sps system. Besides the plates what do I need to order as far as the legs? I've never used the system before so I'm really not sure how it all fits together. If I got it figured right I think the following is all I need besides the plates....thanks!


This would be for 6,8,10 plates and 4 inches high

Yes these are the pillars that most of us use but you need to ensure your cake when iced is 4 inches tall, a bit over is fine but under creates a gap. If you haven't ready checked it out at the top of the Cake Decorating forum is a sticky with SPS instructions by Leah_s and they will really help you.

SPS great. Just remember to take the collars off the bottoms of the plates so everything sits flush.

The 4" columns are for a stacked cake with 4" tall tiers - industry standard.

The multi-piece set can be used for a 5" tall tier, or to create the airspace needed for a cake with separations.

The 9" tall columns, for me anyway, are for cutting down into odd lengths.

And yes, do remember to take the collars off the plates for stacked construction.
