I have a cake to deliver that will be a total of three tiers. The top two tiers will be stacked, but then there will be a 1-2" gap between the 2nd and 3rd tier to allow a "floating" look.

The cake is going appx 2 miles away with few turns/bumps. I really hate to stack on site due to the design of this cake. Is the SPS system sturdy enough (typically) to handle transporting this style of cake completely assembled? It's a 6 10 14. Thanks!

First that's a separated design, not a floating design. Floating is when each tier is on a separate stand/pedestal.

Second you can't pre-assemble and deliver a *separated* cake.

Stack the bottom two tiers. Put the leg and plate assembly into the middle tier. It will be sticking up in the air. When you get onsite, pick up the top tier which will be on it's own covered cardboard and place it on the SPS plate. Seriously if that takes you more than 1/2 second, you did it wrong. And remember to punch a hole in the top tier's cardboard, or you will be in a mess.
