I hope I can get some suggestions to pull off a cake I have for this weekend. I am using a mirrored glass and champagne flute design for the cake separator. The bottom tier is 14", the middle tier is 10" and the mirrored glass and champagne flute design will be on top of the 10". There will be a 6" cake on top. For those of you who have used heavy separators or toppers, what would you suggest? The separator is 2 lb. and 4 oz. I know plastic hollow dowels are probably the best option. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

How did you get on please Melanie? I fancy trying something similar with martini glasses and mirrors (though I thought acrylic mirror might be better if rigid enough) but worried about weight too.

Helen.....The use of Wiltonn's hollow, plastic dowels should to nicely.
Just be sure you cut *all* of them exactly the same length so everything will be level icon_smile.gif
