I need help
I want to decorate a cake dummie with something that is not edible.
I will set up a table in a seminar and I want to display this cake.
If anyone has ideas please help. I don't wan to use fondat or royal icing.
I heard one time their is some type of material for walls, that I can use for the cake dummie.
I've heard that the chemicals in regular plastering wall compound from the hardware stores may actually start to "melt" styrofoam....so that might not be ideal for long-term display?
I saved a link one time on here (I think??) from a company that actually produces a non-edible plaster that is produced for bakers and is safe for cake dummies. It was amazing stuff and I think it came in a few shades too!
I'll go look for it, but someone here may have it saved too?
Okay, I can't find the company that makes it, but I did a search online and found a few cake supply companies that seem to carry it. It's a big white bucket of artificial buttercream called "Perma-Frost" and maybe there's one called "Perma-Ice" too? (Looks just like a big bucket of fondant.)
I tried to Google it for more info, but it comes up with thousands of hits on geography and the Arctic regions telling me everything I've ever wanted to know about "permafrost", but not CAKE "Perma-Frost".
Hopefully that helps you out a bit.
I tried using spackle once and it was alot more hassle than it was worth. The one I got did not come out white, but more like a gray.
Even if it is going to be sitting around you can still do a cake in Fondant or Royal icing. I have ones in my house iced in both and have been there for over a year, or two or three, and still look good.
It's called perma ice and countrykitchensa.com carries it.
I use lightweight spackle. Works great!
