For those of you that use cake dummies can where do you get yours from. I'm wanting to try different ideas out but don't want to bake that many cakes. So I'm looking for a place I can get them at a reasonable price with a good variety. I've seen a tool in Hobby Lobby where I can cut or shape it...but I'm thinking it would be easier if they already have the shape I'm wanting ... if that makes sense. I live in Kansas so if anyone know of a place local that will be even better.

TIA

I always get mine through Ebay. For the last 5 years, I've bought them from a company called "Taylor Foam" that usually has them up for Ebay auction. I'm sure you could find their actual website too if you googled it. They are inexpensive & will ship them right to you.

Do you prefer the ones with straight edges or rounded edges? I need to buy some but don't know which is better, easier to work with, and cleaner in appearance when covered with fondant.

I went in halves on the shipping with a friend got them at www.**********.com on ebay. I got the sets of the round and squares, she got the set of the contoured squares, rounds and the pillows. The shipping was the bulk part of the cost.

I also purchase mine off ebay from www.*************.com

He has a deal where you can pick two styles for one price, or buy individual dummies.

I have bought several dummies from him, fast shipping and great deals!

Either works ... It really just depends on what look you are going for
just make sure you smooth the top edges (lightly) & spray a light mist of water on the foam before you add the fondant. That will help the fondant go smoothly on the foam
