How do I make homemade cake separaters? i am doing a baby shower cake on Friday and need to make some.
do you mean the columns to hold up different tiers?
I would use PVC pipe wrapped in coordinating fondant color
more info please ..... I'm not sure what kind of design you're going for with 'homemade' separators. Do you mean pillars or spacers?
If you're looking for spacer ideas, here's a cake I did this weekend: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1492272 (I hate the cake, btw, so overlook how crappy it looks). The separator between the tiers is just 5 pieces of cardboards cut to size, taped together, then wrapped with black ribbon. I used the width of the ribbon to determine how high to make the spacers.
For a pillar look, you might try small glasses, or building blocks glued together. Both of these will require some kind of support system underneath, though.
