AFor those who decorate dummy cakes with buttercream, what recipe do you use? My usual bc is somewhat expensive and obviously this is not to be consumed so what's a good workable bc to use?

I use wiltons class b/c with just the shortening. No butter. make it just like it says. i don,t use the salt either.On the wilton site of course. Still love your c/c icing, carmijok.I wrap my dummy with press n seal(brand name, not cheap kind) using 2 pieces of press n seal. works great.

AThanks! Good to know about the press n seal. So, just using the shortening...it crusts well?

AThanks. I'm thinking of entering a couple of contests and I've never done a dummy before.
