Cake Disaster- Buy the SPS!!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Great save - on both parts (chef and you.)

As I always say, the center dowel is false security. All it's doing is sticking into the bottom board - it is not supporting your cake. And with all due respect, the straws certainly did not work to support the cake properly.

One of the many good things about SPS is that the legs are locked into the plate, rather than a cardboard just sitting on top of a dowel or straw.

SPS - buy it today.

And no, I am not a compensated spokesperson for SPS. I buy mine just like everyone else.

Im glad everything worked out for you.

I know that SPS is a support system but what does SPS actually stand for? What company makes it and where can I buy it. Does anyone know of any tutorials or youtube how to videos using the SPS? I would like to watch a cake being stacked with the SPS.

SPS = Single Plate Separator
Manufacturer = BakeryCrafts
Tutorial = have you read my signature?

Single Plate Seperator. In the Forums section here - go under "How Do I" and the 2nd sticky from the top is all about the SPS from Leahs - she explains everything here. I don't know that there is a video showing cakes being stacked with SPS - but once you get them in your hands - Leahs instructions totally make perfect sense! The SPS system is super simple and extremely reliable.

Great save on your part and the chefs! I could've used someone like hiim when I had my "caketastrophe" that led me to get SPS. By the way, I stack on site (still can't shake the horror of the 4 tier cake collapse lol), and I put fondant ribbon on all the time before assembling the cake.

Does everyone put the fondant ribbon on after assembly?? I guess it never occured to me that it needed to be together in order to do it, so I always do it before stacking.

It turned out great! I would have been a total wreck. I haven't had a so called "cake disaster" yet (some may beg to differ LOL) But I have a panic attack before and during every delivery. My husband have to ask each other for forgiveness when the delivery is over. I need to check into the SPS. Does it stay with the customer?

And yes, I add my fondant ribbon after stacking. I would wreck it totally if not! LOL!

I am in a very rural area - and I end up being very friendly with most of my brides. I give them the choice of: 1. Paying for the SPS system which normally runs between $20 and $30 depending on how many tiers and then just throwing the plates and supports away as the cake is being cut/disassembled; or 2. Pay a deposit, save all pieces, CLEAN THEM COMPLETELY, then bring them back to me and you will get your deposit back. I haven't had a bride take me up on #2 yet!

Nice recovery. I usually will not stack a cake more than two high when I have to deliver them. Then I add the other tiers at the hall. Think of it as a learning experience. thumbs_up.gif
