I need help with using my first dummy cake. I am using a mirror base for a 2 tier cake. The bottom tier is a dummy cake. Im a worried the cake is not going to stay in place on top of the mirror. Will a layer of Royal frosting in between the mirror and dummy cake be strong enough to prevent it from sliding? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
The RI might be good, that is what I use when attaching a dummy cake to a board but on the other hand, I am not sure how well it will stay on a mirror piece. You could try Krazy Glue.
I usually use a glue gun when attaching it on boards.
I have often made dummy cakes but never put them on a mirror. Still I think just a nice sized blob of b'cream icing in the center will do nicely. That';s all I've ever done.
I've done cakes on mirrors but never a dummy. Usually a smear of royal keeps mine firmly planted.
Piping gel could be a good glue as well.
Thanks everyone for the tips using the dummy cake. I decided to not use the mirror after all. I did not want to take the chance of the cake sliding and I did not want to ruin the mirror. I did however use hot glue and it worked perfect. I delivered the cake this morning and they loved it. Thanks for all the great suggestions.
