This is my first post here AND its a query . I'm an amateur baker and run a small home based custom baking service. I've been asked to provide some wedding cakesample pictures to a wedding planner with future prospects of doing their wedding cakes for them. I was wondering if I can cover dummy cakes with RI instead of gumpaste for a more sturdier and harder finish.The reason being simple that Fondant/Gumpaste is not just gonna be expensive but also may not dry hard enough in the current monsoon weather that we have here in India. Also I was wondering is it possible to reuse the same dummy cake for multiple cake decoration ideas instead of buying v7-8 dummy cake and decorating them and then searching for a place to store them at home. Can i remove the decorations like flowers etc and reuse the RI iced dummy again??? Please do advice.
B.t.w Fondant covered dummies also pose a risk of any infestation in my home since it overlooks the woods and hence I am not fond of covering the dummies with fondant.
