Cake drum.

You were asking about the board at the base of the cake, right?

no i meant when you decorate a dummy cake so you dont have to make the cake you can just decorate a fake one - what is this made of?

They are styrofoam, made specifically for cake dummies.

I suppose you could, as long as it is strictly a dummy cake. If you were using dummies with real cake to create separators or a dummy tier within a real cake that will be eaten, then you need to be extremely careful, to the point that it is actually a no-no. From what I have been told, oasis is toxic and should never be in contact or in close proximity to food items.

huh good to know oasis is toxic. I just made some cake pops and stuck them in oasis. Guess I will never do that again.

I think you can cover the oasis in plastic wrap a couple of times. I have seen that...cover it with a few layers nice and tight. Might be okay for sticking the lollipop sticks in at that point...not sure. I was told to always use regular florist foam if not using cake dummies.
