What fake icing do you use on dummy cakes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a fake icing to use on dummy cakes. I thought about using joint compound found at The Home Depot. Can anyone suggest something. I really don't want to spend a lot of money.

Thanks

I usually just use shortening under fondant, or royal icing to cover my cake dummies. Fondant is easier to remove. Royal icing dries as hard as a brick.

Edited to add: There is a picture in my photos (purple and white) I just did covered in fondant with shortening under it .

Use the joint compound... it's easy to work with, lightweight, and durable.

I took a class on piping not too long ago and we used cake dummies we covered the cake dummy in fondant we used a little water to make it stick and piped with royal icing. Hope this helps,

I just finished a dummy cake and just sprayed the styrofoam with water to get the fondant to stick. It worked great!

For BC, I just use my regular recipe but I leave out the dream whip and the flavoring.
