I use boba straws I think there called, instead of dowels, but that is just my preference from using them both. They are used as supports so that the tiers don't sink into each other with the weight.
Thank you Amanda , I hope I am making cakes for as long as you have, I really enjoy it, and I know with the more cakes I do the better they will get. Fingers crossed.

Which is Ninas Cakey Bakies.
