Wooden Dowel for Cakes? What the?

Read this first before you jump into your first tiered cake! Wooden Doweling   is actually really important and I must admit until very recently I had no idea why! When Stacking cakes  it's important that each layer will be supported - not sink in or crush the tiers below. How do Cake decorators do this? With Doweling! Depending on the height and layers you may need a tall centre dowel as well as smaller dowel rods. Wooden Dowel rods are really versatile as you can trim to the exact size /height of your cake using garden secateurs. Approximately  five to six dowels are often needed for each layer.  N.B. Make sure the rods you buy are non toxic! Here in Cairns I got a bit excited today as I found some cheap non -toxic dowels suitable for mt next cake project! The aim of Cake Decor Cairns is to bring you the local deals so, this weeks find is:  Overflow FNQ  Stores have these non - toxic wooden dowels available for just $2.50 a packet!  P

My son's school celebrated St Patricks Day on Friday - but let's rewind to the day before... Thursday afternoon I collected my son from school. "Mummy it's St Patricks Day tomorrow you have to bring in food to share" I though oh great, but how about something easy and healthy like green grapes, kiwi fruit, honey dew melon - it's all green it will do.
