I have been asked to make a 3 tier dummy Wedding cake for the end of August. My question is...when should I start making it? When is too early? It will be my first dummy and my first Wedding cake.
It's a dummy. It's never too early. I would definately make it ahead of time, then you won't be pressed for time. Just keep it somewhere dust-free.
Will it not crack?
I have dummies in my case that are several years old. No problems. What on it would crack?
What kind of fondant do you/have you used for the dummies? What do you use for adhesive on to the foam? Do you add anything to your fondant?
I have one to do for Mid Oct. but will have a little down time after next week and thought about knocking it out.
Leah....I just got my SPS system and I'm going to put it to use this weekend! So excited!
I use Wilton fondant for dummy cakes. I don't consider it particularly edible, so it's fine for dummy cakes. And, this week Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon (check their website) so my 5# box of Wilton fondant was about $14 this week. Deal!!
A light mist, and I mean LIGHT mist of water will adhere your fondant to the styro.
Thanks again. I was going to use the Wilton fondant.
