Hi Cakers !! icon_biggrin.gif

I see the sticky of SPS at the top of this forum. However, there are over 300 responses. I hope that someone can answer this quickly for me without me having to scan all 300+ replies?? icon_biggrin.gif

My cakes come out about 3 1/4" tall. Not the 4" standard size required for SPS. I use 1/2" foamcore board under my cakes. So the total height, AFTER icing is a little over 4".

Does the SPS work with Foamcore board?? What happens when the cake is over 4" high??

Thanks folks

Ummm . . . the SPS legs are sitting ON TOP of the foamcore, so your cake is still too short.

The standard cake height for all serving charts is 4", so your cakes really need to be taller, or you're not giving your customers a standard serving.

SPS legs come pre-cut in 4", 5" , 7" and then the 9" leg that you can custom cut to whatever length you need.

But honestly, your tiers should be 4" tall.
