    Great quality and price. Not flimsy like some of the cheaper brands. These are great for supporting cake tiers. A little difficult to cut evenly though.

    These plastic cake dowel rods are the same ones I have been purchasing at the store for years but at a much better price! It's a must have for all cake decorators!!

    First time using these, they are a lot sturdier and thicker than I would have thought. You can cut them with a serrated knife. Worked perfectly in 3 tier cake. I would recommend and continue to use in the future.

    I like these dowel rods. They are awesome at helping give my cakes a good support system when staking cakes. They are also easy to cut and insert into the cake. I would definitely consider buying these again.

    I like that these are easy to cut and you don't have to bust out the pipe cutter to cut them. They hold up really well too!

    I really liked these dowels I use them for all my tiered cakes for support. I love easier it is to cut them to size than using wood dowels.

    Heavy duty cake rods. Will keep your cake tiers very stable. Thick and also strong. But able to cut to desired length. Worth purchasing here.

    We love these dowel rods! They are strong & hold up heavy tiers of cake, but incredibly easy to cut to the needed length for each cake.

    A two tiered wedding cake, with the tiers being help in place using these Wilton dowel rods. Was driven over 2 hours with no sagging!

    These cake dowels worked well for their purpose however the packaging needs improvement. I was planning to split the packs with someone else and when I took the packs out of the box, they were not well sealed and dowels started falling out and rolling around on the floor. I salvaged 2 packs to give to my friend and washed the others to keep for myself.

    3tier cake with Wilton rods

    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.

    These are essential to supporting a tiered cake! I use these plastic dowel rods inside all my cakes to make sure they have a strong construction.

    I use them to support my cakes and seguire using , are hygienic , presentable , durable and easy to cut to size . very practical for my storage

    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.
