Help me as the cake is due tommrow. Has any ever used the Wilton spectator plates and plastic dowel rods? This may be a stupid question but the dowel rods do not fit into the separator plate is there something else that needs to go on the end before the plate?????

which "dowels" do you have? those separator plates have specific ones that snap onto them...can't just use the plastic plain dowel rods.

With this type of plates from Wilton are you planning to use, the wooden or plastic dowels? You also need the "peg legs" : http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=3E311B76-475A-BAC0-5EF476FB742AB190&fid=BCA9E6B2-475A-BAC0-5BCF4FA5D1CCC994
to hold the separator plates in place on top of the cake it is resting on. Go to Wilton's website for the different types of cake construction. Are you just stacking? Then you don't need the pegs. Is it Pillars with plates, then it is recommended they are used. I've used them in the past with my older cakes. I hope this helps.

You don't need the plastic dowel rods, you need the hidden pillars:

Most people throw away the plate pegs... they're useless when they don't stay snapped in place.

Too true, I use to glue them on with royal icing, let dry, then carefully place on top cake.
