I'm making several dummy cakes in fondant for my portfolio... however... I'm thinking there HAS to be a better (ie cheaper) way to stick the fondant to the dummy other than using buttercream (which is what I use on my real cakes). I've heard of using Apricot jam... do you think that would work on the dummy? Have any of you ever used anything else? I have them covered in saran so I can reuse them... I'm just trying to come up with a better solution than the bc. Any help would be sooo appreciated. Thanks!

you can also just mist your dummy with water right before placing the fondant on.
