Last weekend I made a cake for a birthday party I was attending, and the lady hosting the party asked me to cut the cake. When i was cutting the cake, I was trying to remove the dowels, and unfortunately I had to use my fingers to get the dowels out. (My hands were clean, but I can imagine how gross it may have looked to some people).

Anyways, how do you remove the dowels?

TIA!

I actually wear gloves to remove it. Hmm, I wonder how other people do it.

I use straws but when i remove them i use tweezers. I dunno if that would work for wooden dowels but it's worth a shot.

Long skinny tweezers, similar to the kinds beaders use.

I use a tiny pair of jewelry pliers. But I also use the SPS so most of the pillars/dowels come out when I pull up the plate.
