Frosting a Dummy cake, It won't say put!!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm trying to front some dummies with butter cream, but since they don't have the weight the regular cake has, It won't stay in one place when I apply pressure. Any tips?

For the smaller sizes you could stick a large fork used for carving into the bottom and hold it in your hand while frosting. Best to have 3 or 4 prongs.

we used to have a heavy piece of wood with nails sticking up on it

 

it was kinda scary looking otherwise --had to be careful where you left it--

 

like not on a chair or anything

 

but it worked

Costumeczar did a blog post on that. Google "A Cake to Remember dummy cake tips", it should pop up.

I made a dummy decorator out of the following items all hot glued together in order from the bottom up: glass block, 3" PVC pipe section, 3 nails.  Set this on some non skid on your turntable and then impale your dummy on top.  If you don't like covering with the fondant hanging down, just impale a larger cake board on it first. Costs less than $10, available at the hardware store, no cutting or nailing, and it works great!

Here, I found it. I'm super cheap so this is my solution: http://acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2012/03/diy-cake-dummy-decorating-board.html

Thank you all for your help.

The Ateco solution for $30 was the best for me. I just ordered online, and I own a cake bussines so i will get the cost worth over time.

I'll keep you posted on the results.
