I am very happy with these Wilton supports are very resistant and durable I use them in cakes from 2 to 5 floors without any inconvenience. And the price on this website is without a doubt the best I've found. Silvia G.

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.

I have been using these cake dowel rods as supports for my wedding cakes for over a decade. Absolutely the best cake supports out there, easy to cut and very sturdy.

These cake dowels are useful when securing tiered cakes. They are easy to cut if length is too long. Good to have on hand if you assemble tiered cakes regularly.

Dena L. from Kalani Kakes on 01/03/2022

These are awesome they are the only supports I use for my cakes and they hold up great ,I will continue to buy these in the future.

I love these plastic dowel rods! I use them to stabilize many wedding cakes that I've made. I never worry about the stability of my cake when i'm using these.

Dorothy T. on 09/18/2021

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.

Misti S. from Buttercream Bakery on 10/24/2020

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.

Donald G. from Don Gleim Auctions on 02/19/2020

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.

Amanda L. from Mandaleephotograpy on 02/07/2020

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)

Brittany M. on 02/01/2020

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

Luz A. on 01/27/2020

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.

Steve W. on 01/16/2020

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

Seda M. from Wholly Sweets Bake Shop on 11/17/2019

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!

Marielle B. from The Boyer Bakery on 11/05/2019

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

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

Margaret C. from Cake Me Away on 03/27/2019

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!!
