I recently purchased Sugarshack's DVD on Stacking. I have a few questions regarding the bubble tea straws?
1. Has anyone tried this method of Sugarshack's yet? I'm dying too.
2. Does anyone know the size to order?
3. Where can I order some of these bubble tea straws?

Thanks. Can't wait to try it. Love all of her videos.

I have this DVD and I love it!!

1. I've tried it and it's great. Cake didn't move. I was scared to put the dowel through, but it went through easily.

2. I figure you would get the bigger size; not sure because I bought the ones I have from an Asian store.

3. I bought my bubble tea straws from an Asian store here for about .79 per bag of 50. Try googling some Asian stores in your area. That's what I did and found one close to my house, I had been passing it every day taking my kids to school. icon_lol.gif

I use them and I love them. They are strong and wider than any other straws I've seen. I buy mine on ebay, but the Asian store idea sounds better.

I got my bubble tea straws from Lollicup.com but it doesn't look like they offer the straws anymore...but if you google 'bubble tea straws' you'll find a couple of suppliers! Here one who's prices aren't bad: http://www.bubbleteasupply.com/store/store.php3?item_id=2.

Bubble tea straws are the best! I buy mine from an Asian grocery store but they can easily be purchased from ebay.

I don't have the dvd...but I do have the straws and they are fabulous.
It is a little scary at first, but I have never had a problem. The biggest I have used them on was a 3 tier wedding cake 10...8...6 stacked.
I to get them on e-bay.

The first time I ever tried the straws was on a 4-tiered cake!! It worked out great!! Like you, I was a little scared, but I had no problems!!

I am very unfamiliar with the straw method. Are they used instead of dowels? Has anyone used them on heavy larger cakes?

TIA! Liz icon_wink.gif

On a recent Ace of Cakes, they showed Geoff clipping straws to length on a base tier...not that AOC is the be-all-and-end-all, but if the straws work for them!

When I get them at the Asian market, I pay $1.00 or so for a big bag of about 20!!!!

I just watched Sugarshacks dvd and I was wandering, I have never transported a 4 tier cake already stacked only 3 tiers. Do any of you guys do that. I have a cake to deliver Saturday and I sure would like to take it already stacked.

I do, but only with some flavors. Most of the cakes I deliver are 35+ miles away, winding, climbing, bumpy roads. When someone orders super moist cakes, or ones with fillings that may compromise the trip, I opt to assemble on site. Basic cake flavors with buttercream filling, stacked, staked and travel fully assembled.
