Hello, everyone! Please forgive my ignorance but is it okay to spray a dummy cake with a lacquer finish like you would use in wood working? Thank you in advance!
Why?? Are you trying to preserve /prolong it? I have made dozens and never even thought of that It would make people know right off that it’s not a real cake One of the things one wants to convay is the look of a real cake
I may have interpreted you question differently than kakeladi. Did you mean to spray your cake dummy with lacquer before you decorate, like to preserve the styrofoam? If that is what you meant, it would probably make it harder to get your frosting or fondant to stick to it. I always just rub a small amount of Crisco on the dummy to get the fondant to stick. It also makes it easier to remove the fondant, when you want to reuse it. You can even wash your used cake dummies in the dishwasher.
