Tried and Examined – Poly-Dowels July 2023

This month, we had the possibility to attempt Poly-Dowels structural cake helps! 

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

We have 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 protecting our desserts, we took out a cake card the identical measurement as our high 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 measurement. We actually like how the teal dowels will be simply reduce with a normal pair of scissors, however because of the thickness of the white dowels, any cutter with a ‘razor’ sort blade is greatest for an excellent, 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 further central assist (however a further 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 high tier and stepped again to see a superbly degree 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 inside ridges for further assist, and are extremely sturdy. Extremely beneficial!
