I have a friend who is starting a wedding decor/decorating business, she has asked me to do a dummy wedding cake to display at different functions as part of her business to network and show off her skills to clients.

I am new at cake decorating and have never worked with Cake dummies, is there any specific instructions on the CCwebsite, and how long can you use a cake dummy for??

I am so clueless. Any help would be appreciated.

They can be used until the icing falls off icon_smile.gif Most of mine were b'cream and lasted about 1- 1 1/2 yrs.

I've always done mine in fondant, RI, and gumpaste. Depending on the storage and handling, they'll last 2-3 years. Basically like kakeladi said, until the icing falls off/they start to look bad. There are LOTS of threads about cake dummies. Just do a search and you'll turn up a ton of info.
