They're nice and thick like a pec pipe, but much easier to cut. The biggest problem I have with them, is that they are warped a bit. How can I put a dowel in straight when the pipe isn't straight? One is very curved and another has a slight curve, so I feel like I can only really use two of the four dowels, making them not worth the money.

I like these for stacked cake because they provide the same stability as a wooden dowel but are easier to use. They are easy to cut with scissors and make much less of a mess than sawing down dowels to length. I highly recommend these.

I'm so excited to use these for my daughters wedding cake! I never knew they existed and thought I had to use wooden ones! These are perfect!

These white plastic dowel rods provide a great support when stacking tiered cakes. They are easy to measure and cut with a serrated knife. So much easier than wooden dowels. The price is even better I usually order 3 packs at a time.

These are soooo much better than the wood ones. They don't break or splinter but they are a slight pain to cut. When placing into a cake, don't remove the cake that ends up in the center of the rod. I've seen people do it and it doesn't end well for them.
Matthew M. from 8 Bit Bakeshop Posted on 10/26/2015
Perfect for my needs! I am so glad I decided to switch from wooded dowel rods. I was getting tired of using the dremel to cut them to size. These plastic dowel rods can be cut with a serrated knife or a really good pair of scissors.
Jennifer R. from Delicious Cakes & Delights Posted on 09/28/2015
These are great for use in tiered cakes. They are long enough that they can be trimmed to fit any size cake layer. They are sturdy, we've used them for a while and have never had a problem.
Josh N. Posted on 08/26/2015
I really like these, they are sturdy and will support my 2 or 3 tier cake. I'm looking forward to using these the next time around.
Donnell M. from Just B'cuz Wedding Posted on 07/11/2015
Exactly what I needed for tiered cakes. easy to cut with a pipe cutter. Great price, great bargain. Strong and simple, glad to find them.

These are perfect for stacking cakes safely and giving the appearance that your cake came from a professional bakery. They will not disappointed you and your cake

I love these for my bigger tiered cakes! They are very sturdy and not impossible to cut (I just use utility shears that are only used in the kitchen) like some others. I prefer these for larger stacked cakes as opposed to wooden dowels since there is no concern about having wood splinters in the cake and does not affect the flavor of the cake or expand when exposed to a more wet cake which can be a concern with wooden dowels.
Sussett S. from S3 Confections Posted on 05/14/2015
I think I hoard these. Websaturant's price is great and unlike the wooden dowels, you don't need a million and one plastic dowels in your cake to hold up.
Shana E. Posted on 04/07/2015
I love these dowels! They are easy to cut with a PVC cutter. I use them all the time for castle cakes, they make great support for the ice cream cones on top. I highly recommend them!
Rosa D. from Rosys Cakes LLC Posted on 03/27/2015

Kristy I. from Peedoodlum's Pastries Posted on 02/26/2015
Once again your product is on point. Quality made as expected used in the process of constructing a two tier cake the plastic is sanitary and safe.

These plastic cake dowel rods are super easy to use! They provide excellent support to tiered cakes and cutting them down is easy to do as well.
Alicia B. from Cakes by Leece Posted on 02/11/2015
If you want a heavy duty, sturdy rod to keep your cake upright, this is it! I am pretty new to cake making and learned about these hollow rods for making tiers safe and supported. I wasn't expecting them to be so rigid and hard to cut though! Definitely need to invest in a good pair of scissor for these or what I have ended up doing is scoring it with a knife and then cutting it. As for function, they work perfect!

These are great for supporting your cakes, remember these are hallow and also these are best used with the Wilton base meant for these So make sure to get the base too
LJ F. Posted on 12/21/2014
These are a must have when putting together very tall stacked cakes. They are a food grade so don't have to worry about anything getting in the cake.
Janice H. from Janice's Cake Creations Posted on 10/27/2014
I love this dowels, and surprisingly they are much cheaper on here than in my local craft store--which is a real plus for me. I use them when making tiered cakes that require the extra support. If I don't have my boba straws (those really fat straws) for support, these are definitely my "go-to".
Brandi G. from Gateway Posted on 10/21/2014
BEST DOWEL RODS EVER! I will never use any other dowels. wooden ones can damage a cake while boba or bubble tea straws can be too pliable. This is the perfect balance. Easy to cut with a sharp knife. Added plus is that they are a foot long,
Ashllyn S. Posted on 10/11/2014
Love these dowel they gave me piece of mind transporting a cake two hours away. The cake was in perfect condition when we arrived. Very strong just make sure you have sharp cutters on hand.
Dana C. from Anna Mea's Bakery Posted on 10/03/2014
I always choose to use these dowel rods, much cheaper than any local cake or craft store near by. Easy to cut and place in my tired cakes,
Joel M. from Reds Cafe Posted on 06/26/2014
This is a great value on dowel rods. They are the normal Wilton quality but cheaper than purchasing locally. Will continue to reorder from this site.
Stephani L. from Sweet Nini's Bakery Posted on 05/19/2014
I love these dowel rods. They do exactly what they are supposed to do. I prefer these over the wooden ones. My cake stayed put and I didn't have to worry about it collapsing! I will be buying these again.
Latoya H. from Cupcakes by Meenah Posted on 05/05/2014
