pack of 8 Cake Support Pins / Dowels by Dinkydoodle Designs

  • a brilliant idea, developed by our friend Dawn Butler - who knows a thing or two about cake decorating
  • dowel rods have been about for decades, but it's not always easy to cut them to exactly the correct length so that the cake is supported safely and is displayed balanced and straight
  • Dawn has come up with an idea that we think is a winner
  • designed to give additional support to multi tier cakes, Dinkydoodle Cake Support Pins do the same job as dowel rods, but there's a clever twist...
  • it's best to watch the little video as Dawn explains the technique really well - it's really simple but is easier to get the idea from the video rather than for us to explain in writing
  • each Dinkydoodle Cake Support Pin has a measuring scale shown in 10mm increments - these allow you to accurately cut each pin to the correct length
  • special plastic means you simply have to score with a sharp blade and bend to 'snap'
  • for best results use a sugarcraft trim knife - carefully!
  • the broad pin head offers more balanced support than traditional dowels
  • you also use fewer pins per cake than with than traditional wooden or plastic dowels
  • white 100% food approved plastic
  • approx 15cm / 150mm / <6" long
  • head approx 2cm / 20mm / ¾" diameter
  • retail packed with instructions
  • for busier cake makers we also have trade packs of 50, bulk packs of 100 and bulk packs of 200 all available at even better prices!
  • concerned about the use of plastic? We understand and share your concerns, but here's the bottom line... this product has to be (a) food approved, (b) easy to cut (the essence of the design) and (c) strong, so it can't be made from wood or metal or some kind of reconstituted cardboard. Sometimes plastic is the only solution

I always worry about using plastic dowels as my wedding cakes can be heavy and the dowels feel like they're going to snap and they're also a pain to cut accurately. This is such a good design and they work exactly as you see in the video. Well impressed. xoxo

Really Safe Dowels

Great idea and I just love the flat heads that your board sits on, this makes them really safe dowels to use
