No Kidding! And it says it's made of STYROFOAM!!!! is the link where you can purchase this. It's actually several pieces from different sets.
I frost all my cake with PP. I've used it with buttercream accents and also put frozen buttercream transfers on it with no problems at all.

You can refridgerate it for 24 hrs but I would make sure it was covered. PP tends to get a "stale" crust on it. I have refridgerated uncovered cakes for...
I bake it at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Like Indy said, when I smell it. it's done!
