Dowel Rods have failed me......where to go from here. - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I never had a problem with dowels, cardboards and a center dowel, then I moved and my cakes go further, on a really crappy road. I had a couple that collapsed on one side and the whole cake got crooked. I was able to make one look straight by sticking napkins under one side of it... I was crushed! So I love the bubble tea and foam core or SPS if it is big or has to go far.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

SPS vote here too. If you can't get your cakes the right height (easier with an Agbay if you've got one) then invest in a little table top saw. They're around $35 at Harbor Freight or Northern tool and then you can cut your pillars to height every time and it's not an expensive gadget! I love SPS and I only stack to what I can carry which is normally two tiers.

I had a similar cake-tastrophe not quite two years ago, gave SPS a try, and I've never looked back. I'm a hobby baker, so I just ordered a few sizes that I use quite a bit, and I've found that I can use the plates/columns a couple of times. I just get them back, clean and sanitize them, and they're good to go.

I've transported several 4 tier cakes FULLY ASSEMBLED with absolutely no problems. I'm now an SPS believer!

By the way, LOVE YOUR AVATAR, OP!

I have a large wedding cake to do in March and I cant cut dowels to the same height to save my life so I am looking at buying the SPS for this cake. I am a visual person I need to see pics of how it done... reading the words just dont do it for me, lol... is there a pic tutorial or you tube video somewhere that I can look at??

Thanks Sassy74!

I'm without a doubt going to buy SPS and try it. Any vote for the cheapest place to purchase?
