Poly-Dowels are special designed plastic dowels for building stacked and tiered cakes.
Single White Poly-Dowels (Minimum order of 20).
Length 16" (40.6cm) and diameter 5/8" (1.58cm).
Stronger and longer for use in stacking large heavy tiered cakes.
For even stronger support, 2, 3 or 4 standard Mint Green Poly-Dowels can be slide inside, allowing super strong support for even tiered fruit cake!
The beauty of the Poly-Dowels are that they allow the cake to pass through them instead of compressing the cake like conventional dowels.
The plastic that these are made from has been specially engineered for these to hold weight. The bubble tea straws are the same plastic as drinking straws but thicker. The Poly-Dowels as you see from the picture are not just thicker but have internal ridges for even more support. Other dowels may be prone to collapsing, specifically solid wooden or plastic dowels as there is no where for the cake to go.
They have undergone some serious testing including for food safety and they passed everything easily. The Poly-Dowels have been on the market for less than 6 months and are available from only a few companies that were selected by the manufacturer.
