I've seen your amazing cakes, and that's how I know that the rod through the cake would mess up their perfectly clean look, especially the tops, 9 times out of 10.
Lots of other people will always have something to put on top of them, I guess. I figure with the cake safe you'll have to either fix the top at the venue, or have a topper that needs to go right in the center.
You're right, there is a hole on top. I am pretty good at repairing the hole, or of course many cakes have toppers, flowers, or monograms. A lot of my cakes lately have been "no-topper" cakes, and I just smooth over the hole when I set up the cake, with either matching buttercream, or fondant with a tad of matching royal icing.
In addition, there have been times I was worried about my top tier having the hole and I just bring the top tier along and put it on at the venue.
There are downsides to everything, like cake stackers having so many pieces, or cakesafes having the hole in the top, or stress free supports being pricey. But for me I just had to weigh the benefits against the downsides and make a decision based on what seemed to make the most sense.
And, my hubby helps deliver all the cakes and after seeing the cakesafe website, he BEGGED me to get one. Now I have 2 and he's been begging me to get a third.
