Does anyone use these? I saw them at the ICES convention this week and wondered if anyone uses them. I would like pros and cons.

My niece's wedding cake is sitting in my fridge right now, all supported with cake jakes. I love those things! No cutting, no wondering if I got the dowels cut exactly. I don't do many wedding cakes, but each one I've done has had the cake jakes. I've been very happy with them.

Cake jakes are plastic dowels that have a screw top that allows you to adjust them to whatever height you need. There are two standard heights (3" and 4") and then they adjust higher as needed. And they can be used over and over again. Wonderful little invention for those of us who hate to cut dowels!

I absolutely LOVE cake jacks!!! icon_razz.gif That's all I have been using for the past 8 years (or longer)! I have plenty of both on hand (and have used both). But I find I use the 3" most often. That could be just the way I do my cakes, though. Try them out ~ I cannot imagine you'd be disappointed! icon_smile.gif

It is blocked because that site is banned from CC and many CCers are banned from that site. Long story, not worth getting into. Go to Country Kitchen or better yet Global Sugar Arts.

For those of you who have used cake jacks, can the plastic screw insert hold lots of weight? The only concern I have is it's not one whole piece the part holding the cake is thinner, I would hate for it to break!

I have been to the website, they say they are wonderful of course but I was wondering from anyone with personal experience NOT affiliated with cakejacks. Thanks though icon_wink.gif
