I just bought a set of seperators for wedding cake dummies I will be making in square and round. I told the man that I want to put roses inbetween each tier and asked him what size seperators to get. He said that they are normally 2 inches smaller than the tier below. I have now received them and it looks wrong to me as the seperators are the same length as the tier above, I am worried that the base of the roses will show including the beginning of the wires. I telephoned him and told him this and he said that really I should have bought seperators which are 2 inches less than the tier above so for the top tier which is 6" I should have a 4" seperator underneath. Anyway, I am not going to send even more money and I don't want to spend od postage again so I am going to try to make do. Can someone give me some advice in making this work?
I reckon I don't understand. Do you have images of the design you are working toward?
Something similar to this...
or more like this...
more like the 3rd one but without the boards. As you can see, the roses are the same width as the tier above. I want to achieve this look but the seperators I have are exactly the same width as the tier above therefore allowing no room for the beginning of the rose. the base of the rose will also be seen.
I just noticed I sent you two identical links....that wasn't supposed to happen
oh poo...I think I get it now....I'm so sorry...I was thinking you meant separator plates
Is there any way you could trim them? I've never done one like that but I would say he was right the 2nd time...2 inches smaller than the tier above it...but that too would depend on the size of your flowers, wouldn't it?
you can only trim the square ones, woudnt be able to trim the round ones. my roses are going to be quite large. will it look odd if i use the seperators i have got?
I don't think so...they would ultimately be in line with the tier below instead of the tier above. What the board the cake was on was larger on the next tier up...not so much that it protruded like the one in the 3 example
I am thinking of doing a 'flat' design on the seperators so it won't stick out too much from the tier above. something like flower cut outs etc..
I think I get what you mean~just move each separation down one tier and make do with something to hold up the top tier~~
If I understood the dilema you described then I hope ^^^ that makes sense.
Like I did a tower of roses cake and it had 4 jillion tiers well possible exageration there but it had one tier too many anyhow and oopsie I'm setting up and there's nothing to separate the top tier-hahahanotsofunny~~ so I had a small plastic container holding some fondant doodads for the groom's cake and lo and behold instant-pillar-separation-in-a-pinch
I'll have to experiment, keep you posted!
I have made a design from the seperators but I don't know how to attach the picture to this forum?
If you upload your photo to your gallery, you can add a link to that here...
Is this it?
