I'm new at this and would appreciate any help or advice. I have a tiered cake that was just ordered, 14, 10, 6 and this is my first! The cake is a white cake, just wondering if anyone has tried using the thick white lollipop sticks instead of wooden dowels for support...it seems like this would have a better appearance but didn't know if this was a viable solution.
Dowels or lollipop sticks

Oh heavens no, don't use lollipop sticks! Haven't you ever had one in your mouth after the sucker is gone? It starts to disintegrate and get slimy. That sounds like a bad idea.
I'd suggest you go all out on a secure method for your very first big cake, such as SPS. Look for Leahs posts on the subject. Alternatively you can use dowels, and many of us, including me, use boba tea straws (google it). But I would recommend exploring those alternatives after you see how well you handle this first big cake.
