well i have a friend who just asked me if i could make 75 cupcakes for tomorrow. the question is she wants a fake cake for presentation. the problem is i dont have any cake dummies. i was gonna order some till next month. so my question is how can i make a fake cake. i was thinking of using my cake pans but i dont know if that will work. i want to use fondant too. i would really appreciate any ideas. thanks
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!!!
styrofoam covered in plactic wrap?
All the pps suggestions work, as well as a saran wrapped stack of cardboards.
THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE SUGGESTIONS!
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.
You can use regular small cardboard boxes. Just ice them like you would for a regular cake.
step0nmi--what section of michael's do the sell styrofoam circles?
my guess would be the floral department
Yes, the floral dept. Most of the time they have them by the vines.
