I am sure that I have made this harder that it really needs to be but,

I have a couple of questions:

I ordered the legs you specified in the tutorial. It came with the ridged grecian columns and the 2" columns with notches on the bottom lip. Which do I use? I looks like you are using only the grecian ones....but what are the others for?

And second. I use 1/2 foam core for the base of my layers. Do you think that it matters if I use that? I know the center notch won't go all the way through, but it should lodge in there well enough right?

Also, do you push the plate all the way down before you put the next layer on OR do you leave it up a bit so it will be push down by the weight of the cake?

Thanks so much for your time and help.

Julia

I honestly don't have a clue what you've got, unless you ordered the multi-piece legs. Those are generally for cakes with separations or, I suppose, really tall cakes. I use the GC-4s. They come in a bag of 12 pieces, each one 4" in length.


And second. I use 1/2 foam core for the base of my layers. Do you think that it matters if I use that? I know the center notch won't go all the way through, but it should lodge in there well enough right?

Well, since the legs only give you 4" of height, and you're devoting 1/2" of that to foamcore, your cake could only be 3.5" tall. Remember with SPS your cardboard is sitting on a sturdy plastic plate. Really, truly, a regular cake carboard will be fine. The extra sturdiness you wanted when using dowels, and your decision to use the foamcore, just isn't needed with SPS. You've already got the sturdiness of the plasticplate and leg assembly. That thing isn't going anywhere. You just don't need the foamcore.


Also, do you push the plate all the way down before you put the next layer on OR do you leave it up a bit so it will be push down by the weight of the cake?

I do push the plate and leg assembly all the way in, but that's jsut personal choice. No real reason, and either way should be fine.
