I have a related cake dummy question...I'm taking a fondant class at a local cake store on Saturday and we can use a cake dummy ( I still have to buy one). I've asked if we need to cover it with anything and have been told no.

I'm assuming we'll put a layer of BC before we do fondant (because option 2 was to bring a crumb coated 2 layer 8 or 9 in. round cake). Won't that ruin my cake dummy if I don't have it wrapped in plastic wrap or something?

I recently ordered from Dallas-Foam, but I was slapped with over $20 worth of shipping on a $25 order. Plus, they didn't even tell me what my shipping charges were going to be until after I had confirmed and paid for my order. The good news is I have a ton of dummies, and I personally feel like one after spending all that money on shipping. icon_smile.gif


Just my own personal experience.

I got mine from Sugarcraft.com. However, I must say, I thought $30+ for styrofoam was quite expensive.
I don't have fear of running out.
I have faith for running over!

Hi

I have bought from Dallas Foam by their web site. Everything in my order was ok.

Just one thing: they ask a minimum of buying of 25$ and they charge shipping fees of 35$ plus 5$ for handling fees... It costs me around 100$ canadian for an order of 25$ usd !!!

So be sure to order all you will need in advance to avoid the same fees in a month !

Have a good day !

Maybe we need to look for styrofoam/foamrubber suppliers in our own town.

If somebody find other suppliers for this product, don't hesitate to tell us !!

someone posted a link a while back to a place in PA that sells them and I can't find the link or the thread! I had it bookmarked in my favorites and have since changed computers!!!! I will try to find it though. The place was very reasonable on their prices and the shipping was WAY cheap.

I want to say it was actually a custom furniture store, but I can't remember. All I know is that the website had a blue background. icon_cry.gif

I sell cake dummies, but they are not styrofoam. They are the soft cake dummies. For fondant, they do not have to be beveled. They work very well with both Buttercream and Royal.

I do not have minimum orders and shipping runs an average of $10. This could be less or more depending on the number AND size of the dummies. I can also get the dummies in any height, but the minimum is 2" high and 4" across.

If you would like a special shape that is not normally found in dummies, you can send me an EXACT size template of what you would like and I will cut them for you.

All the information you need on pricing is on my web site, www.thesugarfix.com.

I made dummies by using rice crispy treats. You totally can't tell. I just made them in my pans. Also- totally stale now (including the MMF) and I've decorated, redecorated several times.

I just ordered from Dallas foam also. Their prices are so inexpensive in the first place, tht even if you figure double to cover shipping, they are still about 1/3 to 1/2 less then anywhere around here!
They also called with the shipping quote pior to shipping to make sure I was going to be ok with the amount.

Here is the place in PA that sells dummies. They are a furniture manufacturer (sofas). I haven't ordered yet but will soon.
They have every shape & size you could want from 2" thick to 6".

Example: a 4" x 12" round is $3.76
Here are their shipping cost....

ALL SHIPPING via UPS
$5.00 BOXING & HANDLING FEE PER BOX
MOST ORDERS SHIP WITHIN 24 TO 48 HOURS OF BEING PLACED
( We're usually good on those times, but when we get backed up with orders it could take a little longer. )
NO MINIMUM ORDER (1 OR 2000 PIECES)
