Styrofoam Cake Dummies
We carry quality styrofoam cake dummies for the professional Cake Decorator. Our styrofoam is made of a denser foam, stronger, more durable and easy to work with. We keep a large amount of standard tier heights and sizes on hand and custom shapes can be ordered.
How to Use a Cake Dummy
Cake dummies are great for weddings and other occassions where you want to make a big impactful cake but... maybe don't plan on feeding 500 people.
To prep your styrofoam cake dummy:
- Gently sand the edges of the styrofoam.
- Coat with a thin layer of either buttercreme or piping gel (this will help the fondant stick to the styrofoam!)
- roll out your fondant and drape over the cake dummy then smooth with a fondant smoothing tool.
- Trim the fondant around the bottom edge of your cake dummy.
- Move to the cake board or tier of your project and decorate!
