In watching "Ace of Cakes" the other night, I noticed they are using some sort of tube support for their tiered/stacked cakes. They were cutting these tubes with scissors. They kinda sounded like straws when they cut them. I'd say the tubes were about 1/2" to 1" in diameter and were orange (I think). Does anyone know what these are? They just seemed to be a more economical and equally sturdy way of supporting stacked/tiered cakes.

Bubble Tea Straws...you can just google them. But yup, they are bigger straws for drinking bubble tea...and make great supports!

They're probably bubble tea straws. A lot of people use them instead of dowels.

Bubble Straws! That totally makes sense! BTW, have you ever tried one of those drinks for which the straws are actually for? They are quite a different experience!
