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:

  1. Gently sand the edges of the styrofoam.
  2. Coat with a thin layer of either buttercreme or piping gel (this will help the fondant stick to the styrofoam!)
  3. roll out your fondant and drape over the cake dummy then smooth with a fondant smoothing tool.
  4. Trim the fondant around the bottom edge of your cake dummy.
  5. Move to the cake board or tier of your project and decorate!
