Cake Dummies

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am going to begin practicing more with cake dummies and I was wondering, do you have to cover them with anything before decorating them?? I once read that you should cover them in contact paper before icing and decorations. I understand that it would assist in clean-up but it seems like it would not be as smooth to cover?? Help?!? icon_sad.gif

When I took the classes at Michael's, our instructor told us to cover the dummy in piping gel before applying the fondant...I am going to try this soon too so let me know how yours works out!!

I read somewhere on here where someone said to cover them with saran wrap-plastic wrap. I started using the large or x-large bowl covers made by them. They work great!

Yes contact paper is used on dummy cakes. For the fact that from experience the buttercream icing when rubbing it off seems to get into the pores of the dummy cake. Also you could use your cake pans upside down. That is what I did for this practice cake.
The silver ribbon was wrapped around the dummy cakes and the cake were my pans turned upside down and iced.
