I am interested in getting some cake dummies to practice on and make my b-day cake with. Where is the best place to get them?? Any advice? and once used, can they be reused? I would hate to get them and only be able to use them once. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yes they can be re-used. You can try your local cake store or on line the best places I have seen so far are either d a l l as foam or t a y lo r foam (please remove the spaces when you look for their website). Most folks either use a clingwrap and then cover their dummy and then remove fondant/bc or they soak it in hot water to dissolve the sugar. I've read that some even use a dishwasher.

This is my favourite option to date (banging on the floor posted by _Jamie_):

Some people also soak it but that would be a huge mess.

Hooo boy! Yep, cracks it right off, no bits and pieces left, clean as a whistle! There is one particular dummy that I have washed and scrubbed on, and it is not as firm as it used to be. I won't be putting them in water anymore! icon_smile.gif
