I'm using cake dummies for my fair entries. I have never used them before. Do I need to put icing on them before I cover them with fondant??

Thanks icon_smile.gif

No, all you need to do is spray the Styrofoam with water, (not too much), just enough to moisten it. You can also use a paint brush to brush the water on the Styrofoam. HTH

just what Sandy said icon_smile.gif it's a little harder to cover dummies for me though because you have to get it just right...easier to fix though since you won't be messing up a cake underneath icon_wink.gif

I use them all the time either as demo cakes or as a filler to make a cake look grander. I smear it with a good coating of crisco. Not only does this make the surface smoother and help the fondant to adhere but it also makes clean up a snap.
