Do you all ganache dummy cakes for weddings or a simple crusting BC will work? I just thought to use all that good ganache on a dummy cake would never be enjoyed especially since ganache is so expensive to make.
you don't really need anything...just spray lightly with water and it will attach
You dont have to treat it like a real cake, it definitely doesnt need buttercream or ganache. I rub the dummies with shortening, its much easier when taking off the ucing when I've finished. If I've used water I have to use a hammer.
True story - At a wedding show a few years ago, a well-known bakery brought in a dummy cake that had been ganached. Their spot turned out to be in front of a window. They looked on in horror as the ganache on their dummy cake melted.
No, I feel like the ganache would be a waste. I use shortening on my dummies. I apply it liberally all over the styrofoam and it will smooth over any cracks and imperfections. It's always worked well for me.
Thanks for the shortening advice!
