What do you guys use for display or practice cakes? I got some cake dummies , but wondering if you use real fondant , or are there any replacements?
Also , any good/cheaper recommendations on buying marshmellows?

I've always used just regular fondant when covering a dummy. If it is for practice, to me you want to practice with what you would be using on a real cake.

I just buy the 5 lbs box of Wilton to cover my dummies. It usually runs about $22 and I use a 40-50% off coupon from Michael's. I can easily cover a 6, 8, 10 round with that much fondant.
