They work! I tried both methods for the first time this weekend. I was scared to death to hammer that dowel through my cake, but just like indydebi said; it goes through the cake like butter! I couldn't believe it! I also used the Melvira method to smooth the buttercream- wow! That was totally awesome! I was so afaid the finish wouldn't be as smooth as I wanted, since my inspiration cake was covered in fondant, the birthday girl did not want fondant. It turned out great.
Thanks CCers for so many great tips!
