I read somewhere else on here that some people use dog nail clippers to cut dowels, so you might give that a try.
I'm shooting for somewhere between Cake Boss and Cake Wrecks.

I have a good quality pair of dog toenail clippers that I bought just for dowels. They work great. Get the ones that look kind of like wire cutters

I have used all those and had a bit of trouble getting it thru and then it crushing the dowel. If it's all you have, it will work but my husband got this funky little tool (I think it's made to cut tv cable) and it clamps around the dowel and you put your finger in and squeeze as you spin around a couple of times and it makes a nice, flat cut.

I will try to find it and put a pic up if anyone is interested. HTH icon_smile.gif

I use small pruning shears. Only about 7" long, stay right in my kitchen drawer.

Pvc cutter--I got mine at my plumbing store but I'm sure the big box stores have them. I've also used the pruning shears too.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner! Well thank you guys for your responses, I had no clue what they were called, or where I could buy them.

Cakediva, if you could post a pic that would be great. Thanks!!

I also use the pvc pipe cutter from Home Depot, or any hardware store.
they clamp down on the dowel rod and cuts it pretty effortlessly.
it cost around $30.00 but well worth it.
I haven't tried the dog clippers, bet they would work.
