Hi Im doing my daughter wedding cake and I need to practice putting on the fondant.  I cant make alot of cake because its just my husband and me.  Is it ok to use and reuse cake dummy with icing and then fondant? Do I have to seal the dummies with anything? If I cant use dummies what else can I use?

  Thanks in advance

Yes a dummy is great. Rub it with some shortening or similar to make the fondant stick. You can do it over and over again. If you don't have a dummy use a big upside down cake tin for example.
