Yes...they work just the same as the 4 inch ones. I generally cut them on my DH's band saw he has set up in the basement. Then sterilize and use as usual.

Bakery Craft also carries a multi piece column set. It includes 2" and 5" columns which you can piece together. With this you can use them for 2", 4", 5" 7" or 9" tiers without having to cut a thing.

Yes, I cut down the 9" scored supports when I get my cakes too tall. I use my husband's band saw, works like a charm!! Sharon

I have always used wooden dowels as well but the last wedding cake I did made me really nervous the whole 45 min ride so I was looking for something a little stronger. I have to travel at least 30 mins with most of my cakes so I really need great support.

I transported a wedding cake for about 70 miles using the sps system that I bought from jesters cake supply online and I transported a 5 tier cake for about 10 miles with no problem. I love the sps, I use it on all my tiered cakes and just increased my prices to include them. Good Luck Sharon
