I happend to come across a add for the adjustable dowel rods where you unscrew to the height you need. My questions:

1. Have you ever used them?

2. Are they actually sturdy enough not to need wooden?

3. Could you use these on a topsy turvy done like the mad hatter (without cutting the top out?

I am just so curious. I know I can't get the dowels cut correctly so I avoid using them.

TIA

.......Have you ever used them? Answer: Yes

..... Are they actually sturdy enough not to need wooden? Yes

........Could you use these on a topsy turvy done like the mad hatter (without cutting the top out?.....Probably not

I didn't care for them. I thought they were not as stable as other forms and the major thing - it's a pain getting them back icon_sad.gif
I don't think there are enough different sizes to use in TT cakes. They only adjust so much.

thank you so much. the getting them back part wouldn't be a issue for me as I'm ususally there when the cake is served but I just wasn't sure if it was worth the investment. Thanks again.
