    Perfect dowels for large tiered cakes. I used them in a 5 tier wedding cake and had no issues with support. The caterers said I had made one of the best support systems they had ever seen!

    Very sturdy dowels. Length is perfect for taller cakes or they can easily be cut for shorter cakes. Very good structure support for any cake.

    These are just as you would expect and much less expensive than purchasing from a specialty craft / arts store. Love being able to purchase decorating supplies here also!

    The Wilton cake dowel rods fit perfectly into the Wilton cake separators. They are not the best quality however. After cutting them to fit into the layers, they frayed on the ends and I had to sand them so that plastic partials did not get into the cake.

    These are great for stacking cakes. Easy to cut and easy to use. I'm very happy I can buy them in bulk! I will be buying again.

    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!!

    from Michelle's Scrumptious Bakery Posted on

    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.
