This month for us it's all about the Cake Dummy! They're perfect for so many different applications from practicing cake decorating skills to use as fake tiers and they're so easy to use. We stock them in both round and square shapes in two depths, either 3" or 4" and in diameters of 3" to 18". Check out our cake dummy pages here.
Practice makes perfect!
Cake dummies are absolutely ideal for practicing all manner of cake decorating and sugarcraft skills. Instead of baking a cake just to practice covering a cake with sugarpaste why not use a polystyrene dummy instead? It can be re-used and is a cheaper than the ingredients in a cake.
Show off your skills!
Exhibiting your cake company at a wedding fair or want to display your skills in your shop? Instead of baking a cake just for your displays that won't be eaten make up a fake cake using cake dummies; not only will this last so much longer it's a much cheaper alternative to baking a cake.
Want to make a cake look larger than it is? Perhaps the amount of cake you or your customer needs for your guests is smaller than the impression you want to make; with a cake dummy or two you could add fake tiers to make your cake look larger without wasting large amounts of cake.
If you're not sure how to prepare your dummy for use this great video below will guide you through what you can to do!
