I plan to make my first three-tiered cake soon. I know that I should sharpen a wooden dowel and tap it through all tiers down into the bottom board. The Wilton dowels are only 12" long. I'm afraid that they'll be too short if I have 3"-deep cakes that have been filled and frosted.
Is there anywhere to get food-safe dowels that are longer than 12"?
Thanks for any and all suggestions!!!
You might be able to order them on the internet. You could always try the SPS system...and then you won't need dowels. =o)
Here's the link so you will know what SPS is!
I get mine at home depot, or the hardware store. As long as they are untreated wood, they're food safe. You can wipe them down with white vinegar or a weak bleach solution to make sure they're clean. Remember, before Wilton marketed "cake dowels," the hardware/hobby store was the only place to get them.
