Important Information: These separators have a cantilever design meaning they have been specifically designed to have a certain amount of flexibility to allow for manual adjustment and placement. This allows for variation between cake weights, making them suitable to be used with both real cakes and dummy cakes.

Please Note - When using two or more separators, we recommend incorporating faux dummy tiers into your cake design to help keep your creation within the stable wait limits.

Please follow all guidelines carefully and visit our YouTube channel for full tips and tutorials on best practices when assembling your floating creations. Following these guidelines will ensure you reach success!
