This handmade floating spiral is designed in a flexible 6mm solid steel so you can stretch the height out if you wish - the sizing we recommended is mentioned below. You can bend and manipulate the metal and no two spirals will look exactly the same as the metal as hand twisted.
The largest of size is the most flexibilty spiral there is and may need additional support at the back of the cake.
We strongly recommend you purchase the spiral and design the cake around it NOT the other way round. Please contact us for further information about the product and bespoke sizing.
Currently there are 4 size options - all have a standard base and 2/3 turns. Please be aware that these are approximate sizes and there maybe some variance and please allow room if you are decorating the spiral.
Base diameter of 30cm (Height to extend up to 50cm) this is ideal for a 2-3 tier cake, there is little spring in the spiral.
Base diameter of 35cm (Height to expand up to 50cm) this is ideal for a 2-3 tier cake.
Base diameter of 40cm (Height to extend up to 70cm) this is big enough to fit over a 4 tier cake - there is some spring in the spiral to stretch downwards or upwards a little further - 50- 65cm
Base diameter of 50cm (Height to extend up to 80-90cm)
PLEASE NOTE this is big enough to fit up to a 5/6 tier cake - However the spiral is very flexible and will possibly require anchoring to the cake - via a middle fake tier if the florals are heavy.
Currently comes in UNFINISHED 6mm solid steel - Ideal if decorating completely in florals.
There’s a choice of metallic finishes Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Gun metal grey and Copper See see RUSTOLEUM spray paint for the colours of metallics used. Plus matt finishes of white & black.
Decoration not included - suitable for DIY use. Spiral care - Please be aware that the steel may tarnish or could chip with over use (especially if used at Weddings every week) and the steel is made from welded steel and if left out in changing weather conditions or is exposed to water the steel will rust over time - HOWEVER the spirals can sprayed with rustoleum spray (available in all the metallic colours used) so if you lightly sand the steel you are able to re-spray the steel again - a new coat of rustoleum will bring them back to life and you can continue to use the hoop for a number of years.
Please note that everything we make in metal is handmade and there will be a welded joint and some imperfections. We strive to make as many lovely accessories and props as possible and we hope you are satisfied with the product.
