You need to ensure that when you’re crafting your sandwich that nothing on it falls off. This might cause your final product to be completely different from what you were expecting it to be, and you might not get the right typing for your Sandwich. You’ll know you’ve succeeded as you’ll get Level 3 Sparkling, as well as some other Level 3 power stacks as a final outcome. You don’t need to put the top part of the sandwich on to get the boosts.
