I want to show off some of my "skills" ( icon_biggrin.gif ) for decorating wedding cakes. I had planned on make a 8''-6''-4'' cake and decorating it like I would a wedding cake.

I was wondering if I got some cake dummies in the same sizes and decorated them would it be the same as a real cake? I would hate to have nice clean sides with no buldging, book a bride and then make a ugly wedding cake for her. I dont want to show off my work as close as possible.

I know exactly what you mean icon_smile.gif Dummies are great to practice with but aren't quite the same as cake. I use dummies to practice my fondant techniques, but have recently started to bake real cake. It helps to use the real thing so that you know how to prevent bulging, sagging or any other problems that may arise. I would suggest practicing with dummies, but be sure to work with real cakes before any big events as well thumbs_up.gif
