Tried and Examined – Poly-Dowels July 2023

This month, we had the prospect to strive Poly-Dowels structural cake helps! 

Poly-Dowels is the US producer of the unique inner structural cake helps with inside ridges, offering most assist for the heaviest weight of multi-tiered desserts when doweled appropriately. 

We had been despatched each The Unique White Poly-Dowels (16” lengthy – for stacking any quantity of cake tiers) and the Teal Sq. Poly-Dowels (12” lengthy – for stacking as much as 4 cake tiers). To check the dowels, we determined to make a two-tier floral marriage ceremony cake. 

After overlaying our desserts, we took out a cake card the identical dimension as our prime tier and marked a information on the highest of the bottom tier. Subsequent we inserted a bamboo skewer into the centre of the cake to measure the depth, marking with an edible pen. 

Utilizing the marked skewer as a information, we positioned alongside each the white and teal dowels and reduce to dimension. We actually like how the teal dowels might be simply reduce with a normal pair of scissors, however because of the thickness of the white dowels, any cutter with a ‘razor’ kind blade is greatest for , clear reduce. 

Pushing the dowels into the cake was fast and easy. They didn’t crush the cake or trigger any motion throughout the layers, which is a big plus. We used 4 teal lengths in a diamond form, and added a white dowel within the centre for additional central assist (however a further teal dowel would have additionally labored completely for a cake this dimension). 

After including a skinny layer of royal icing over the dowels, we positioned our prime tier and stepped again to see a wonderfully stage and safe cake. The tiers sat superbly with no motion or sinking! 

General, we couldn’t be extra impressed with Poly-Dowels. They’re tremendous easy to make use of, re-usable when washed completely, have inner ridges for additional assist, and are extremely sturdy. Extremely advisable!
