well i'm sure this will get censored... but I've ordered from www.taylorfoam.com and www.**********.com  They're very reasonably priced.

I have ordered from www.**********.com and wasn't all that happy with the quality of the dummies. There is a local place near me that sells much better quality dummies, for not much more money. Not chunks or divots in the foam that need to be filled in with Royal Icing.

He does not have a website as of yet, but will be happy to email you a price list if you call him. He also has foam core in different thicknesses and shapes to match the dummies. He has dummies from 2" to 6" high, and I'm sure if you wanted higher he could accomodate.

His info is as follows: The Dummy Place, CT 860-875-1736


He is the nicest person I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

I recently was contacted by a company here in GA called Shape Formations and there prices are cheaper than Dallas foam. I have not yet ordered from them but have planned to this coming Friday. http://www.shapeformation.com/

Wow, those are great prices. Do you happen to know what the shipping charges are. Do you have to call and place the order? I couldn't see anything on-line.

You do have to call to place an order and no I don't know what the shipping costs are, sorry I can't help there.

I am providing a dummy cake display for an auction that my Mom is organizing in June & I'll be donating a gift certificate for the purchase of a cake for the winner. I was wondering where I was going to find my dummies at. Thank you CC! icon_lol.gif
