I need a good/inexpensive styrofoam vendor that I can buy oversized pieces from for carving large dummy cakes. Online is fine- United States preferably as I am in Texas .

If anyone can point me in a direction I'd be really grateful-
thanks in advance!

When I am going to carve my own dummies I buy insulation boards at my local home depot or lowes. They come in 1/2 in and up... I think to 3". Maybe more never checked. It comes in 4x8 sheets that if it won't fit in your car or van you can simply cut or break where needed to make it fit.
Last ones that I purchased were around 11.00 for the board, and that was 2" thick.
If I am not going to cut my own I have a great supplier on ebay. Many different shapes and sizes. You can buy a complete set or you can buy just one tier.
They are around 9 to 11 plus shipping so around 18.00 total and you get 4 or 5 tiers depending on what you pick.
If you want the suppliers information just pm or email me.

Dallas Foam is the best place - I have purchased dummies a few times and they also made custom rounds for the centerpieces at my daughters wedding! Customer service is excellent.

Please don't try to circumvent CC's autoblock program, that will result in the thread being locked.
