Fake cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Good morning. I have another question. I am making a wedding cake sample for a wedding planner friend to display at a trade show for two days (probably 9 hour days). I just about died when I saw the cost of the foam, so here's my question. If I make a real cake would it survive those two days out side of the fridge, or would it be a sweaty melted mess? I'm assuming with all the bodies, and lights it may get rather warm. Or should I swallow the cost and make a mmf cake over the foam forms? Thanks again! 

Btw, I make my bc with vegetable shortening and water.

Could you use something other than the cake dummies?  I am thinking of the paper mache round hat boxes in the craft stores.  Or maybe some other round container?  You could cover it with press and seal or saran wrap so the icing didn't soak in and make the container soft.

How much were the dummies that you saw? They're not that expensive; a few bucks a piece.

Typically the foam is inexpensive bu the shipping can be horrid!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I usually get my cake dummies from Dallas Foam on eBay.  A set of 4 is usually around $12, and with shipping, about $20.
