Snarkbait...I mean sharkbait, I would just mold it out of RKT. Unless you really want to carve and shape a hunk of styrofoam. icon_wink.gif

You carve the dummy to look like a beehive. Use a knife, a hot knife maybe.

You use the sizes appropriate to your project.

Is any of it going to be a real cake at all?

There are cake dummy places you can write away to that would be happy to create the tiers needed for your dummy project AND round off the top edges for you but I would just go to your local craft store and purchase a flat sheet of styrofoam and carve away. For a 10" board you'd probably start out with a 9" then 7" - 6" - 5" and 4" layers that are no more than 1-1/2" to 2" thick. Hope this helps.

FINALLY DeniseNH thank you for finally being nice and giving me an answer and being helpful and not like ////////

all i asked was a question and never thought i would get these kind of responses i did get some styrofoam sheets to carve out and yes i DO know how to carve things, im act. pretty more crafty then some of you. icon_cool.gif

my plan is to carve out 4 sheets and a half ball to make a beehive and then to cover in fondant so i can place some marshmallow pops around the beehive along with some cupcakes on a cupcake stand.

all i wanted was a lil bit of help. but i guess i was wrong. icon_sad.gif

once i finish this i plan on posting pix to show and i will be nice enough to give others helpful advice. thumbs_up.gif

I believe this would be the reason you were not getting helpful responses. Just because your posting has been viewed a number of times does not mean that those that read it had any helpful advice to offer. I know I read your posting when I was reading through the newest posts but wouldn't know how to advise using dummies for that particular shape. Posting impolite comments when you haven't received replies doesn't exactly make people want to offer advice.
