Hi I am decorating cake dummies for the first time. I am doing a 'ruffle' cake, so using strips of fondant  I have read about covering the dummies in a thin layer of shortening before starting - my question is, do I need to completely cover the dummies with fondant before putting the ruffles on or will the ruffles stick to the dummies by themselves? Thanks for any advice.

AYes, you have to cover your cake dummy with fondant first. Otherwise, your ruffled fondant strips will not adhere to the styrofoam. It would be a lesson in frustration if you didn't.
