Usually, wherever you order cake supplies from, will also sell dummies. Sometimes it's easier to order and ship a bunch of items together. Dallas Foam does have better prices than several other cake supply sites.

The thing I like about Dallas Foam is I have never had a dummy come in dented.  I have ordered from others because I ordered other supplies but it seems I always have to fix them.  Must be a packing thing.

I love what I do and do what I love

Thank you guys. Would you say these are sturdy? As i need to use them as dummies towered on top of each other, as a three tier wedding cake.

Absolutely.  I assume you are going to stack them with royal icing for glue.  That's what I use.

I have found great dummies at http://www.buyfoamblocks.com/ in the past for some of my events. I was also able to reuse some of them which saved me a few bucks :-D

buyfoamblocks.com is a good place to get some. Im not sure what your looking for exactly but they come in different quantities and prices

I'm looking at Dallas Foam for dummies, as recommended.  Any thoughts on the "standard" versus the "rounded" version.  I generally go for sharp corners on my cakes, but I'm afraid the squared off corners on the standard round cake dummy will look artificially sharp, iIf that makes any sense...

This is a cake I did with 2/3 being standard cake dummies (My friend wanted more height over servings) the dummies were purchased from Dallas foam. I use veggie shortening to attach my fondant to the dummies, so I think that after i passed my hands over it a few times, the edges kind of soften up also, the thickness of your fondant and how much you smooth it out after applying has something to do with how sharp the edges look! Hth!
