This is a display cake that I made, and the first time I have attempted to do a fake cake. Wow was it difficult to ice and decorate these weightless dummies! I did a paper thin coat of buttercream on it to smooth out the surface of the dummy as well as giving the fondant something to cling too. Maybe I should take a different route to avoid trying to ice these slippery little suckers! The ruffles and pearls are fondant with gumtex. I hand painted them with a more dull silver to try to keep a romantic look.
