I can not find these anywhere!! Everywhere I have called they have been like "what, I have never heard of this" I have called rest. supply, cake supply, asian markets, party supply - and I can not find them anywhere. Is there anyone here in Oklahoma that knows where I can get some. I was wanting to use them in some cakes for this weekend as I have 3, 4-tiered cakes to do this weekend and I don't have time to order them online and have them shipped. ANYONE KNOW??

Midwest Baker's Supply over by the fairgrounds is probably your best bet at this point. I don't remember them having bubble tea straws, but they have the wilton plastic hollow dowels that are basically a much stronger bubble tea straw. I, personally, am too afraid to use straws, but these wilton supports are great. Probably the only wilton product I'd recommend, actually. You could also get them at Michael's or Hobby Lobby, of course.

yeah I called them and they do not have them either - we are on a first name basis with each other there haha. The wilton hollow dowwels that you are talking about - are they easy to cut? thank you for responding

Yup, you can either cut them with something like a pair of garden shears, or with a serrated knife. They're white plastic, 4 in a pack, and they look like big straws.

Oh, how I miss MWBS!!!! There's not a cake shop anywhere near me since we had to move to GA. Sigh...

Could you remind me of the names of the mother and daughter owners? I was so embarrassed when I ran into them at OSSAS last year and couldn't remember their names!! I think they just know me as "the girl who did the tornado cake at Tulsa"!! icon_smile.gif

Let me know how it goes this weekend! I'm making a birthday cake for my daughter turning three, and the child chose a wedding cake! My children are officially cake snobs!!!

haha, that seems to always happen. I have one for a 2 year old this weekend and the mother insists that I do a 3-d Shrek and she sent me the pic of what she wanted and I was like OH MY GOSH so I told her it would be like $200 hoping that would turn her off and then I got a check in the mail 2 days later for it. GOOD GRIEF So now I have to figure out what/how I am going to do this haha
