The floral dept. of walmart has styrofoam. Maybe you could cut it to the size you want and use that? Or a michael's, hobby lobby, etc. Good luck!

Oh! I always use the styrofoam circles at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. All I do is get the size that I need and then stack them and hot glue them one of top of the other for the thickness I like. A little more expensive but, it works!!! icon_biggrin.gif

All the pps suggestions work, as well as a saran wrapped stack of cardboards.

someone on this site has a dummy caked made out of clear taped wrapped insulation??? any ideas who, or any thoughts about this? I too was wondering about a "practice" cake...one that I can decorate and then clean off so that I dont have to keep buying styrofoam circles.

any input???

You can use regular small cardboard boxes. Just ice them like you would for a regular cake.

Yes, the floral dept. Most of the time they have them by the vines.
