The first thing that comes to mind mind every time I hear that comment is..." IT"S CAKE AND FROSTING...it's SUPPOSE to be sweet! DUH!"If people don't like sweet, then don't order cake! Seems so simple to me.KimAZ
I've used styrofoam dummies many times for show cakes. First, I either file down or press down the top and bottom edges so they're not so sharp. If there are any big holes or chunks out of the styrofoam, I filled them with royal icing....
Luckily, the East Valley has a new supply shop as well. Phoenix Cake Company in Gilbert recently started carrying supplies, fondant, dusts, tools, boards, boxes, etc. They are off Gilbert Rd/ Baseline Rd in Gilbert.KimAZ
Congratulations! I opted not to enter the AZ State fair this year for the first time in 6 years. There has only been any real competition one of those years. I won BOS every year so I know it's exciting!KimAZ
