I know you use cake dummies to practice frosting and decorating. My question is what do you do when the "cake" is finished? Do you just scrape the frosting off and throw it away? Or can you reuse it on a new "cake" design? What about using fondant on the cake dummies?

I would be using Indydebi's buttercream. And Michele Foster's Fondant.

Since the fondant will set up after it sets on the dummy I would say I'd probably toss it.

Same thing with the buttercream, where it crust can cause little bits of harder pieces in the icing.

Yeah, I just wash 'em and reuse.
