I bought some dummies and want to cover them in fondant - the project I'll be doing will take probably several days so the fondant will dry (I want it to be a fun, leisurely project). What's the best way to attach the fondant to the dummy so that I'll be able to take it off once I'm finished? I want to be able to re-use the dummies. Thanks!

You can attach it however you want - some use water, some use crisco, some use buttercream. The easiest way to remove fondant is to soak the dummy in a sink full of hot water. Put a weight on top so it submerges. Then peel off the fondant.

AIf you coat the dummy with shortening first, the fondant will peel off very easily without soaking.
