Just wondering if anyone has come out with a cake dummy that you can wash and reuse without having to cover it with plasic wrap.

I don't think so. If so I have not heard about it yet.

I wash regular styrofoam cake dummies. I do not cover them in plastic before I use them.

Me, too. Warm water & a little soap makes them fine for re-use--just make sure that they're very dry before using them again (it can take a day, or so, for all of the water to get out of the crevices).

I've heard of some people putting them in the top rack of a dishwasher--haven't tried it, but I see how it could work, too.

Is it possible to spray the styro with poly-eurothane or something? Or will that eat the styro??? Then you can wash without geting it soaking wet. Whoever knows the anser, speak up! icon_smile.gif

I use my regular BC on dummies. No saran or anything. When I'm ready to change designs, I just run a knife under the icing and it pops right off. Wipe with a damp rag and I"m ready to go.

If you use fondant, that may be different. I'm a BC gal.
