Hi,

What do you guys use to smooth cake dummy edges? I am not going to buttercream the dummy, so I need to soften the edges somehow.

Thanks.

I read about people on here writing about taking a nail file to the edges or mashing the edge on the counter. Pfft, I've never had a problem using them as they come. Never had fondant tearing, etc.

fine grit sandpaper. just lightly rub along the sharp edge and it'll smooth it out nicely.

I roll the edges on a counter or hard surface to soften them. I learned this at a demo from a top decorator. Just keep rolling and repeating the process, they get soft and nicely rounded. I have a guy in town now, that does them already ordered with the contoured edges. Happy Cake Decorating icon_wink.gif

I use my rolling pin and roll it around the sides. If that's not readily available, I use the countertops or table.
