hi all i have bought a cake dummy to practise piping ect on do i use it as it is or cover it with cling film it is made of polystirene. thanks sue
Hi laidback, Im sure i read something about not covering your dummys, BUT just untill you can be sure i would put a covering of greaseproof or clingflim on there
thanks kath i will try it.
eventually, after a really long time, your dummies will start to break down but you can just wash it off and start fresh, no need to cover with anything.
When I put fondant on dummies I rub it with shortening so the fondant will stick and this make it really easy to take off later, even a year later. I used to use water to stick my fondant to the foam but that was like getting concrete off.
Shortening or piping gel either one will work really well.
thanks everyone i will try that, im just starting out cake decorating so dummy is the operative word, picking up some great tips here of all you lovely people
