To those of you who use wooden dowels (non-Wilton), what thickness do you use? I visited the hardware store and saw there were a variety of thickness. Do you use the thickness similar to Wilton's wooden dowels or larger?
Thanks in advance.
I think most people still use food-safe dowels, which you can't get at the hardware store. However, you can get them at cake supply shops, and in other brands than Wilton.
I wish I could give you more info, but that's all I got.
I've used dowels from Michaels and had no idea they were any different from the Wilton dowels. However, I was at a demo by Nicholas Lodge and he told how the dowels from home improvement stores "may" be treated with fungicide chemicals so he never suggests using them.
