.......those large cake straws that I see the professional's using on tv all the time???? I've looked under "cake straws", to no avail.

Those are the straws they use when you buy Bubble Tea... think you might find those in a restaurant supply store.

oh good cose i need to do a small 2 tier stacked cake and i don't want to bother buying dowels cose i prob don't need them cose it's only a small cake, but just to be sure i decided to just use some straws instead. I was thinking of just using those hard thick McDonalds straws you can get from the restaurants, they would be alright wouldn't they?

Sorry I can't give any advice on here I havn't used dowels or straws before lol

I think the best, from what I've been reading are bubble tea straws. If you google it, you will find a ton of places that sell them. at tenteatime.com they sell those traws 50/$1.50

I've never used strawa but by reading other forums, some like em some don't, same goes for dowels. Its really by preference.

I use bubble tea straws in all my stacked cakes, including wedding cakes - I love them! So much sturdier than wooden dowels & IMO more hygenic too. I put 4 under 6in cakes, 5 under 8in, 6 under 10in, well spaced to balance the weight. HTH!
