I have a huge business opportunity coming up. I was approached by a major jewelry chain store to be a part of their wedding extravaganza event in April. I need to make a large dummy cake for inside the store and a smaller one for the window. I have never made one of these before and I guess my first and most important question is how fondant will hold up under hot lights in the store window. The cake will be on display for 3 weeks and I don't know how hot the lights will be but I was told that the cake would have to hold up under the hot lights. I am concerned that the fondant will melt. Is this something that I should be concerned about? Someone on another forum told me that gumpaste/fondant flowers will melt so it has me worried that the other fondant on my cake will melt. Any other tips on making a dummy cake will be greatly appreciated. I don't know the first things about it.
