I am referring to these:

They are cheap and the only dowels I get locally are wooden ones: I really want an option that can use scissors and not leave a gaping hole in my cake.

Are these strong? As strong as wooden? Are there situations where you need to use wooden vs straws?!

I have a 3 tier pound cake coming up. Could straws actually hold that sucker?! LOL

I ordered them off ebay and I love them..and they are better than wooden dowels because they don't soak up moisture to weaken in cake, plus they are so much easier to cut. You will love them, I promise...and great investment..

Last week, I used them for a 3 tier wedding cake, and they worked just fine. I like these straws, because you can easily cut them to the right size with scissors. Much easier than wooden dowels.
