I'm concidering buying dummy cakes to decorate so i have more pictures on my webpage. Soes anyone have any tips on how to do this...I only need the BC or MMf on only long enough to decorate and snap a picture.
~Can you cover in BC?
~Do you put piping gel under the fondant to make it stick?
~How do you get the BC or MMF off the dummy?
Any other info would also be alot of help
there are lots of posts about this, with a lot more helpful tips in them (the main one is to get rounded edges on your dummy stops fondant tearing so easily) but to answer your questions:
- bc, fondant, royal, whatever you want.
- you can use piping gel, or just spritz with water (or do a proper crumb coat - not needed, but some people like it, especially if you want to practice real cake things, not just decorating).
- if your icing has dried through, it may just break off with a bit of effort (one post talks about putting it in a carrier bag and whacking it, contains the mess). you can soak it in hot water. if its fresh icing, just pull/ scrape it off, and wipe down.
Here's a link to a thread where I was asking about dummy cakes too
Thanks harleydee and brincess_b.
