Thanks Leah. Yes, I think I have read most of your posts on the topic. With shipping figured in, its still almost $40 from Oasis, but I have not yet emailed for a discount code so I will do that for sure. May I ask what you use to cut your columns? You probably have covered this a million times before, but I cant recall.
I dont charge for my cakes so maybe I am coming from a different view point. I pretty much only do them for charity, family/friends, and sometimes community events. Perhaps that explains why I was leaning towards a reusable system. However, SPS looks so simple that perhaps I cannot resist.
I want to do a 4 tiered topsy turvy for a community event in June and dont want to have to assemble onsite. I haven't had any problems with wood dowels before, but dont want to chance it so one way or the other I need a support system.
