I need to make icing for a dummy cake that is non-edible.  I cannot use Royal Icing.


I'm looking for something that will give an end result that looks like fondant.


Does anyone have a recipe for something I can use???????

The only thing that looks like fondant is fondant. Why does it have to be non-edible? Edible stuff does dry rock hard and last for a long while.

Exactly what I was wondering... why does it need to be non edible?

AAir dry clay or crayola model magic will work very similar to fondant. Both will shrink as they dry fair warning there is also a recipe for faux frosting I came across somewhere for fake cupcakes on instructables using lightweight spackle

our city's restrictions does not allow my business to use "edible" products.  I then go into a completely different category filled with so many restrictions.

I knew about that but it is so expensive, I just wondered if there was a cheaper way by making something similar.

I've used Perma-Ice and its a good product.  A little goes a looooooong way.  However - and this is important - do NOT for any reason wash your bowl and urtensils in your sink.  Take towels or newspaper and wipe out/off every bit of the PermaIce from everything and throw that away.  Any Perma-Ice flecks will remain in your drain pipes for years.  Ask me how I know.
