Reply How to support a 5 tier cake?

Maria @ RooneyGirl BakeShop ...

So the wedding was this past Friday and I decided to transport the cake all separately because since I never used this SPS system before I was afraid to assemble it ahead of time, especially since I could not dowel through the tiers. I was pleased with the sps system overall in that it makes it easy to assemble but my tiers were all 5+ inches tall and my measurements were falling in between the markers so I opted for the taller mark and then had to cover gaps between the tiers. And the rods are a pain to cut – I purchased a small hand saw for them but needed my husband to actually cut them – not very easy… The SPS system is fine overall and I would recommend this product. Certainly easier than bubble straws – the bubble straws I get are always crooked on the blunt end and I always have to trim both sides to get them level.
