Cleaved? Now that's a funny word. You can cleave something apart, or you can cleave something together.
Remember the talk about spoons? The Wand gives it's user an easy access to multitude of spells, at expense of power, although user's natural magical proficiency can override that. Using magic without Wand allows for more powerful spells, but is much more difficult, which is why most magic users have a limited array of magical disciplines at their disposal. Toffee literally turned his spoon into a hand, giving him both reach and power in magic. Shit's about to go down.
Also, Rhombulus was partially right about Star causing problems within magic. But it's not her. It's the fact that there are two spoons now. And they stir in opposite directions.
