    LOVE these cake dowels. I am so happy webstaurant store sells them. We used to get them from our local Michaels but now we can add them to our wholesale order. These dowels are super easy to cut and use for multi tiered cakes.

    what can you say about plastic dowel rods. they are what was expected and performed as expected. price is right. quality great. will continue to order as needed.
    These are strong and stable and heavy-duty. If you're using these to stack your tiers, your cake isn't going anywhere! When using in a cake, be sure to trim them to the same length (and with a straight edge) to ensure the tiers stacked on top will be level.
    These cake pillars/rods are very sturdy and give you that added peace of mind when assembling a wedding cake. They are just the right price that you can add that cost in to your cake orders and still be ok.
    Customers love to use these for their stacked cakes. These are much cheaper from your site than many others. Will definitely order again. Would recommend to others.
    The only thing i really have to say about these is I wish I purchased more of them! They are great! Perfect for stacking cakes.
    Love these dowels! They are very wrong! I use them for every tier cake I make, from 2tiers up to 6 tiers! I personally am able to cut each dowel into half and use the other half for each tier. You will need a heavy duty cutter to easily cut thru. I use a hedge cutter. (Only used for my cakes)
    i love them they are very strong for my cakes very easy to use them i realy recomend them i will be buy them again
    Easy to cut and use for cakes! Thick plastic is great for supporting each layer of cake, I've also used them as extra support for my cupcake stand when I thought it couldn't support the cake on top.
    I use these dowel rods to support tiered cakes.. These are super thick and you will need a sharp utility knife to cut them.. I highly recommend it
    This is the first time we bought these dowels, and they where not a disappointment! They keep our cakes from falling into one another, and keep our tiered cakes stable!
    We use these in all our stacked cakes & work great. Only downfall is the length isnt really divisible by a two layer cake (so you end up having a few small unusable pieces left )over). I have spoke with other cake decorators & they agree as well
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Always a must for big cakes to help support all the weight from cake being stacked ontop of one another. And cut fairly easy to me
    Very well made and easy to cut. Will be purchasing these in the future. Great price and great value. Very happy customer here, will be a repeat customer!!
    I was able to use my other scissors and get them cut with a lot of hard work so it may just be my cheap scissors but I thought it would be tough no matter what. Either way it worked perfectly and held up the cake! This cake was all buttercream so needless to say this sucker was heavy!
    I use these dowls in order to stack my tier cake done the center of each tier. I also cut them in 3 and place them on the bottom tier at other parts of my cake for extra support
    Most people don't even know what a dowel rod is, but in the cake business they are essential. All the best cakes are made with dowel rods. As such, I have ordered this beautiful 4 pack of cake dowel rods. They have been very helpful in my cake baking.
    I baked a 4 layer 14" cake with a 5 layer 10 inch cake on top. I only had to use 2 dowel rods(I cut them in half) the cake was really heavy I was concerned that maybe I should have put more dowel rods for support but it was perfectly secured, I'm very satisfied!
