AI am new to cake decorating and i really want to practise different designs and build up a portfolio, and I have read that wooden cake dummies are better than polystyrine (cant spell) ones but I cant find anywhere that sells them. Can someone help please

Could you make one? Most hardware stores will cut the wood to size for you if you don't have the power tools.

why not just glue a cake pan upside down onto a board -- pans are easier to find, lighter in weight and purposefully re-useable -- styrofoam is fine for this -- no need to go to any trouble with wood unless you just want to -- if there's ten people that think wood is better then there are at least 10 who think styro is better -- and 9.9 of those who vote for wood probably are carpenters :-D
