Does anyone know where I can find wooden dowels 24inches or longer? I have been searching with no luck!

But can you use those?? Are they "food safe" or do you have to cover them with something??

I bought roasting sticks at Xmas tree shop. 36 inches long and they were even sharpened. 12 for $1.99.

Thanks, sandypins. I'll have to check that out at the location they recently opened near me.

Hummmm This sounds like it become one of those good debates!icon_lol.gif They are the same wooden dowels that everyone uses. If I am doing a very tall cake I screw the dowel into the base - then cover it with a plastic dowel. I think it looks better when you cut the cake. icon_rolleyes.gif HTH
