I just finished a 4 tier cake dummy, with loads of detail. Is there a way I can seal it in with a spray matte varnish or some other type of spray so that everything is forever stuck together? Im paranoid that some of the pearl beads may fall off. This cake will be in display at a wedding coordinator's show room and want to avoid potential disaster...
Help!

I have a few dummies done in lightweight spackle with cold porcelain accents (can't use fondant or buttercream for display where I'm living, the insects would have a field day). I've sprayed them to make them easier to clean, but the spray didn't prevent the accents from falling off (and they were hot glued on).

You also have to take into account that people are going to touch...and the only way to prevent that is with a guard holding a cattle prod or a plexiglass case icon_wink.gif

the idea of a cattle prod is extremely delightful...
