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 inside structural cake helps with inside ridges, offering most help for the heaviest weight of multi-tiered desserts when doweled accurately. 

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 wedding ceremony cake. 

After masking our desserts, we took out a cake card the identical measurement 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 lower to measurement. We actually like how the teal dowels might be simply lower with an ordinary pair of scissors, however as a result of thickness of the white dowels, any cutter with a ‘razor’ sort blade is greatest for a very good, clear lower. 

Pushing the dowels into the cake was fast and easy. They didn’t crush the cake or trigger any motion inside 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 further central help (however an extra teal dowel would have additionally labored completely for a cake this measurement). 

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 fantastically with no motion or sinking! 

Total, we couldn’t be extra impressed with Poly-Dowels. They’re tremendous easy to make use of, re-usable when washed totally, have inside ridges for further help, and are extremely sturdy. Extremely really useful!
