I was wondering if you could cover a dummy cake with play dough? I really hate to cover dummy cakes with fondant just to throw it away. It's a lot of time and money compared to making playdough..just wonderng

no reason why not, unless it cracks when it dries. try a small dummy for a test. you should also try a color prone to fade, like lavendar or blue.

Will that Play-do smell dissipate after it dries?

It would be cheaper for you to make MMF and cover your dummy with that! I agree, I think the play-do would crack over time. I have 5 little children and I know what left out play-do looks like at my house! Not pretty!

I agree there, play dough is not pretty after it dries. I think buying bag of marshmellows and powdered sugar is cheeper then play dough.
Check my dummy cake I used marshmellow fondant I made it a day before and covered it the next day.
I hope that makes sence.
