    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.

    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!

    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.

    Two tiered cake with wilton plastic dowel rods inside for support.

    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

    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.

    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".

    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,

    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.

    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.

    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.
