Cake Stuff have always sold traditional plastic cake pillars, but they are actually in fairly short supply as many are no longer being produced so we'll add new ranges, heights, colours and shapes as soon as these become available

There are various theories on how best to use pillars safely - we'd certainly advise using dowel rods which should be cut to fit between the cake boards - pillars are hollow to accommodate dowel rods.  Some cake makers also prefer to use thin cake cards as additional support but these can detract from the appearance of the cake, so are sometimes placed underneath the sugarpaste but that is not often ideal as it makes cutting the cake a lot more awkward

In general, as long as you use a good quality sugarpaste like Regalice, the safest method is normally using pillars with dowel rods

Cake Stuff stock mountains of dowel rods (we order 25,000+ of each size at a time).  All cake dowels are plastic and approved for use with cakes, unlike wooden dowels which are not permitted for use in cakes under current EU directives

Cake pillar dowel supports are made in white and clear plastic in 8" and 12" lengths - they also make ideal cake pop sticks and we sell thousands every month for this use alone
