So I've decided to start practising and build up my skills and portfolio using some styrofoam cake dummies. We've just had too much "just for fun" cake around here! lol
I'm not sure how to start or what to do with them? I'm working with fondant.
Do I cover w/ buttercream first (as w/ real cake), seems like such a waste.
Any help is much appreciated! icon_smile.gif

either that or you can just brush on a little water or put it in a spray bottle and mist the cake lightly with water and the fondant will adhere!

thanks KHalstead...I'm using MMF though - so think the water may cause trouble with that type of fondant?
I'm going to try using my gumpaste glue (dissolved gp in water) and see if that does the trick. icon_smile.gif

I usually use Elmers glue-its not going to be eaten so go ahead and put something that will last and last! I love making my dummies-if only one had more timeicon_smile.gif

I don't think it will be a problem......that's all I use is MMF..you don't want to use a ton of water...just mist it...it's just so the fondant sticks!
