I've decided to start practicing on dummy cakes to perfect techniques and practice in general. When I rolled out my fondant and put it on the foam dummy cake I found that the foam was too unyielding and ripped right through the fondant! Do you guys ice the dummies then put the fondant on? I'd prefer not to ice them so I can reuse them in the future. Any tips? Thanks guys!
Use shortening or spray with water.
AAlso sand down the sharp edges so it won't tear your fondant again.
I read a post, can't remember who, but they cover it with saran wrap then ice it or put crisco etc on, then you can just pull of the fondant and the saran wrap and your dummy is clean!
I am going to see if I can find some foam dummies myself .. good idea without wasting a bunch of ingredients just for decorating practice!!
AiCookiBake, I read the same thing somewhere.. I've also gotta try it.
