# Need help separating two meshes that I accidentally put together

I'm new to blender and following the 2019 donut tutorial by BlenderGuru on youtube and i'm on part 4 modelling where you put icing on your donut. I accidentally duplicated two icing tops and didn't realize it until I almost finished modelling the icing. They're stacked together and the one I haven't modeled is sticking out and I can't delete it or move it away. I may have accidentally merged them together somehow?]2

• maybe you should include the blend file so people can try to figure out the problem. :) – Millard Sep 17 '19 at 23:42

3. Hover over the mesh you would like to select and press L. This will select only the verteces of the original object.
4. Press P and choose selected. This will separate the selected verteces.
