    I’m a home baker, but I make cakes from time to time around the holidays. I’ve tried (and failed miserably) at cakes in the past trying to use make shift rods – what a disaster! These can be cut down to size for the simpler two tiered cakes I make, but now I might try my hand at something a little taller now that I have these.

    These dowels don't disappoint at all. They are much cheaper here then most other sites. The quantity and quality can't be beat. I will order more now that I know what I'm expecting

    I love that I am able to cut these to the appropriate length so that my cakes are adequately supported and I don't have to worry about my cake sagging or falling through.

    These are great for supporting taller cakes. They can also be used to support 3D cookies and other treats. They are plastic and can be cut to any size you need.

    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.
