so I want to keep practicing my cake decorating skills but I dont want to keep having to bake an actual cake. I have heard styrofoam works great as a cake dummy. Are there any other things I could try?

You can use an upside down cake pan.

If you are practising flat piping then a clean tile or piece of Teflon matting will do fine. For in the round a cake tin or biscuit barrel anything really that is vaguely cake shaped and washable. I have been known to tape greaseproof paper to the side of an in use biscuit barrel to practises my piping.

Can I be horrid and quibble with your heading? that is a phrase I have been banned from using by my youngest. She insists - practises makes better because only God is perfect.
