SPS instructions - Page 25

post #361 of 559
Thread Starter 
sps can be purchased from BakeryCrafts or Oasis supply.

There's absolutely no need for a center dowel. SPS is more than securing the cake to a plastic board with icing. We've talked a lot about the center dowel being false security. If your cake is really moving sideways that center dowel will stay impaled in the bottom board as it tears right through your cake.

SPS was CREATED so that customers could pick up and transport their own tiered cakes from bakeries that don't offer delivery.

Leah - The last 2 times I used SPS, when I puched the pillars and plate into my bottom layer it pushed the cake out and caused a blow out type situation at the bottom of my cake. What did I do wrong? - Thanks in advance for your help!

I think maybe you pushed too fast.

Cupcakemkr, were these fondant cakes? I was just thinking maybe if the fondant had firmed up could it keep the cake from sliding into the legs. I always put my plates in when the fondant is still soft. Just a thought.

Thanks Leah - I was pushing kind of slow so I don't think tht was it.

Sillywabbitz - It was bc but I think my cake may have been slightly frozen still (wierd because they had been out for a couple of hours) so the cake wasn't getting into the columns. That's the only thing I could think of.

Thank you both for trying to talk me through this

I have been trying to open the link from page 15 but it just stops and won't load. Is there any other way I can view it? Thanks!

Just tested the link posted by Wesha and it worked for me. icon_smile.gif

Mike, remember to purchase the multi-piece legs.

which page is that on? The cake I am doing is a 16, 12, 8 so am I right in ordering a 10 and 14 inch plate and the 9" multi piece #GC-9S?

The link on the first page still works for me. Even though it shows the little red x just click on it and it will open the PDF file. But the other link is on page 15.

Mike you want the plates to be the same size as the tiers that sit on them. So for the cake you described I'd order a 12 inch and 8 inch plate. Some people do use a size down to hide the plates so you could go slightly smaller but I dont' think you want to go bigger. I generally go with plates the same size and by the time I frost and/or fondant and put a border on it you can not see the plate.

Do you ever put a circle of parchment on the cake before pushing the leg assembly into it, to enable the plate to be lifted off cleanly without bringing fondant with it when you are serving the cake?

peggy,
no way.

Mike, definitely buy plates the same size as the cake, or possbily one size smaller. Plates do come in odd measurements.

which is more common, the same size or one size smaller?
post #375 of 559
also is there much difference between the multi piece columns and the scored columns? is one easier or sturdier than the other?
