I'm so confused on how to use this thing. How do I know what length I need to set it at to get the guides to go all the way around the cake without it crossing over at the end or just not being long enough? I used the cake divider and thought I divided it right but then went to adjust the garland marker itself but had no idea what measurement to set it at.

I feel so!

I've never used one of those, but I'll share how I divide a cake up for this.

I look at the cake like a clock then mark it off by the numbers. A 6" round, I'll make a dot at 12, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. An easy way to do this is mark the 12 and 6 positions ... then I look at the space between the 12 & 6 positions and mark the 2 and 4 positions.

For larger tiers, you may have to use different number locations (12, 3, 6, 9 ... then divide those sections as needed).

Works out even every time.

That sounds like how I'll end up doing it anyway. Thank you so much for your help!
