long lasting cakes

by Mrs K.A N Lesetedi

How do I make a long lasting cake, more especially for a wedding. I have seen it around but since those people do it for business, I don't think they are willing to share the idea. It is like the hard coating is the fondant, but I don't understand how it could last for 5 years or so.

long lasting cakes
by: Vera

I too, have a similar question about the dummy cakes. I have a cake business I just started and I need to make 4-5 wedding cake dummies. I know that you use the styrofoam dummies to make the cake, but how are businesses able to preserve the royal icing and fondant from cracking and falling off the cake?

That is the more important question I have. Is there a way to spray the cake with some sort of acrylic coating? Or is there a special product out there somewhere?

If you know the answer or could direct me to the answer, I would most appreciate it!

Thank you! Vera

Cake Dummies
by: Michelle (admin)

I think what you're referring to, are known as cake dummies. Cake decorators use these Styrofoam cake forms to showcase their decorating style in a way that will last for a long time.
