    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.
    I absolutely love these Wilton dowel rods. I keep reordering them. Strong plastic that supports my cakes, easy to size and cut and easy to grab and remove when cutting the cake.
    Super supportive for my tier cakes, dowel the centers and my cake is not moving! Love that the rods are bigger than the generic bubble tea straw and the plastic is solid yet easy to cut. Love love love these!
    I am happy with my Wilton plastic cake dowel rods. It held up nicely without and I had no concerns. It’s a brand I trust 100%.
    I personally don't like these dowels very much. I found them really hard to cut. I couldn't get a nice even cut. It ate up a lot of the cake and didn't make the top layer straight at all.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I use these in all of my tiered cakes as I don't use a cake plate system so I don't have to worry about customers returning my property. I can cut these easily with a pipe cutter and they provide the stability I prefer in my tiered cakes.
    These rods are pretty big but they can definitely prevent a cake from collapsing. They're very sturdy for tiered cakes and they make life so much easier.
    These plastic dowels from Wilton were easy to use. I cut them with my serrated knife and what you want to easily slide them down into my cake.
    I really like these. Wish more quantity in the bag was an option. I will definitely be reordering. So worth it. Feeling of cake security is important to me.
    These Wilton plastic cake dowel rods come in a four pack and they get the job done. They are nice quality for the price and they're plastic.
    These Wilton brand for plastic cake towels are really nice they are very strong and sturdy and easy to use you can even use it as a cake roll I mean cookie roller
    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!
    I love this product. This product is easy to cut. When I use these plastic cake dowel rods I know that I can always count on a successful cake delivery.
    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 absolutely love this product! This Wilton plastic cake dowel rods work great! These rods are great for a tier cake! The plastic is great quality! This item came in a 4 pack.
    I love to get this here in a webstaurant store, perfect for cake stacking, i use this in a 2 or 3 tier cakes with perfect stability even in a heavy cakes!
    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.
