am i crazy? or where can I find a 5" column.



I just looked on Oasis and they only carry the 4 inch and the 9 inch. Sorry

Miss silly, aren't you helpful!!!! what a great leveling idea. I went to the freezer and pulled out the cakes, stacked together they measure3 3/4 inches. all layers are the same height. I will level each layer to 1.5 inches and that will allow me 1 inch play room...can always add more frosting! thank you for being so kind as to type all that out.....short lived panic!!

Oasis Supply certainly DOES carry the 5" columns - in two colors.

http://www.oasisupply.com/Products/MoreInfo.asp?ProductID=1~BC+GC10S That's the frosted columns


Here are the white 5" columns. http://www.oasisupply.com/Products/MoreInfo.asp?ProductID=1~BC+GC9S

THANK YOU! So i'm assuming that you can just use a 5" 'Grecian column' in the same way as a 4" without the collars for a stacked cake with no separation?

AWESOME! thumbs_up.gif

Yes.

The 4" columns are also Grecian Columns. (the product number is GC (Grecian Column) 4 (4") S)

You will have parts left over from the multi-piece leg set. I don't think that they are recyclable, so just throw them away.

Hello,
I have read the first 15 pages of this thread, and maybe I missed it somewhere, but I have a question about the general construction of a 3 tier cake.

I am making a 6, 8, 12 cake covered in fondant this weekend. I have downloaded the tutorial, purchased the SPS materials and am pretty much set to go.

My question is, on my 12 inch tier, I bought a cake drum to put it on. Do I merely attach the tier to the cake drum with buttercream? Then put on the 8 inch and 6 inch the SPS plates? Is a round 1/2inch cake drum enough to support a 3 tier cake or do I need to make an emergency trip to Michael's/Hobby Lobby to buy something else?

1/2" drum is fine - especially for a cake that small.

All the rest is correct.

WEll...I delivered my first wedding cake on the SPS system. 70 miles on extreme northern minnesota roads, through a road construction site...I can not explain the stress I had for the first 20 miles...it arrived in perfect form to the venue!!! I am a believer!!
On a side note....we hit a deer on the way home, glad that didn't happen on the way there!! Thank you Leah for such detailed instructions, even though I forgot to smear frosting on the seperator plates, that sucker didn't move a fraction of an inch!!

It is a great system. I can't believe anyone uses dowels any longer!

So happy to hear it worked for you. And sorry to hear about the deer and probably your car . . .

Does anyone know if we can get sps in the UK yet? (i may have missed something on a previous page but its a lot to read lol)

I would Love to try it!!
post #416 of 559
so after looking on both sites, sps only works for round tiers? how do you recommend stacking a square (base tier), round (middle tier), and hexagon (top tier) wedding cake?

SPS plates come on round, square and heart shaped. Just use a round under a hex cake. All available on the Oasis Supply site.

I have a three tier cake to deliver this coming Sunday. I just found out that the driveway to the venue is up a long hill with the big chunks of gravel so it'll be very rough. Will the cake make it if I stack it ahead of time or should I stack onsite? This will be the first time using the SPS system. The cake is fondant if that makes a difference. TIA!

The cake should be fine, but I haven't seen the road, so don't sue me. icon_smile.gif
However, if you have doubts and only since it's your first time with SPS, you could stack the bottom couple of tiers and place the top ones onsite. Do what you're comfortable with. And remember, you do have to be able to lift whatever you prestack.
