Do you prefer rounded or straight edges on cake dummies? If so, why?

I'm selfishly looking for advice before I purchase a set. Thanks!

I like straight edges. The rounded edges are WAY too rounded for me. I like a razor sharp top edge on my cakes so I want any dummy work I do to reflect the same style. I just *lightly* buff the corner so the fondant is less likely to tear as you get it on.

I guess it depends on your style. Do your fondant cakes have a sharp top edge or a rounded edge? If rounded I'd get rounded so you are able to replicate the design and your dummy cakes won't stick out as different.

I prefer straight edge.
Also, before you purchase them check out this site:

They have great customer service, a huge selection, the shipping is cheap and fast, and they can customize your sizes. I use them everytime I need dummies, and have never been let down by this company.
