You can do it one of two ways (that I know of):

1. Use pillars a couple of inches taller than the layer below to leave a gap; or

2. Use a foam block as a separater that is several inches less wide than the layer above it (i.e. the layer of cake on top is 8", use a 4" wide block of foam).

One of two ways and very easy as at that.

You know the cakes with shorter versions of this style:

- and the flowers cover the spacers

or regular short columns and the flowers cover the empty space, like this (but the colums will have to inside more

or even a shorter single pole as in this cake (my wedding cake)

Thanks everyone for the help! i bought the foam ( guessing im going to use dowels etc) but i also treated myself to the wilton crystal clear separator set hoping that its the most solid choice ... im going to test try top two levels icon_smile.gif
