I want to make a practice cake for my GD to practice decorating on. I tried wrapping my foam cake (bought at a cake decorating place) with plastic wrap (as the store suggested) and then covering that with royal icing.
It just barely worked. The plastic wrap just would not attach as securely as I would have liked...so the royal icing was not as smooth as I wanted.
GD had fun decorating it...but when I wanted to start over...I had to remove plastic wrap with all the royal on it (as well as the decorations). And so I had to do the whole thing all over again. If I have to do that each time I might as well bake cakes and give them away...LOL!
Is there such a thing as a "practice cake" that one can just wash off the decorations and have a "iced" cake ready for the kid to decorate??
