I have used straws on the past- but am a little nervous. I have a 10" and 8" stacked square cakes. Can I use straws as supports? any suggestions?
Straws hold up pretty well, especially if its just one tier (8") they have to support. I have never had a problem, as long as they are all the same height and in straight!
I have used straws and they worked great. They best kind to use is "bubble tea straws" because they are bigger in diameter and sturdier.
I use straws all the time, no worries!
Have you ever seen someone stab a straw all the way through an orange before? It was on a science program when I was younger to prove how the circle was the strongest shape.
Yes, the big fat straws at McDonalds or Burger King
I only use straws now. I swear they are stronger than dowels! I think being hollow helps, and the cake that gets trapped in the middle. I've had two leaning cakes using dowels and none at all with straws.
I buy a box of large black straws at Smert&Final for less than $4.
