Let me just say this one more time, "Throw away those freakin' dowels and switch to SPS."

There. I feel better.

Ditto. Second. Amen. And thanks, Leah, for introducing me and everyone else on this site to SPS. Don't give up. I've never heard anyone on here say they tried it and went back to dowels. How can you spend your precious time and talent decorating a cake that may/can/might/will collapse?

I was afraid it had fallen on the floor or something! icon_surprised.gif



Well, I'm not sure if you're too young to remember The Brady Bunch, but Greg had all sorts of problems when he found that tiki head necklace in Hawaii!!! lol

She sounds like a great client, that's really nice of her to only want a partial refund. I think you have a client for life.

Oh and I'm sorry to say that SPS didn't work for me. My cakes are always about 5" tall or just under and I had no luck cutting the taller legs to size...I found them REALLY difficult to cut by hand. icon_sad.gif

I use another similar plate/pillar system though, no wooden dowels for me.

Cakestyles, SPS offers legs that come pre-cut to 5". Not a problem at all.
