I have never ever covered a dummy cake with either buttercream or fondant but since I'm starting to get into doing more wedding cakes I thought it might be a good idea to do some and get the photos into my portfolio. For those of you who have worked with the dummies, do I need any sort of support system for stacking or are the dummies firm enough to hold any weight I put on them? I probably won't go more than 4 tiers high but am wondering about the stacking thing. Thanx for any help!

No. You don't need supports for dummy cakes. Even if you do a 10 tier cake.

That is one of the things I love about dummies. You just stick those things on top of each other and don't have to worry about cutting dowels or anything. icon_smile.gif

No support required. They are light and strong.

WHOOO HOOO! Thanks everyone! I've asked for gift certs to a place we all know here (GSA) for mother's day...I figure I can get the sets I want for about $75! Thank you SO much for your help!
