Now I’m not quite sure how long it’s been since I actually left the house and I know it’s the same for so many of you around the world. In the UK there has been alot of panic buying and it can be a little tricky at the moment to get baking supplies for cakes. So if you’re staying at home and want to carry on practising your cake decorating, but you either can’t get any ingredients or you don’t want to make cakes with no one to give them to, I thought for this weeks video tutorial I would show you how I prepare and cover dummy cakes so you can practice on them like real cake.

Now as well as being great to practice on, dummy cakes are perfect if you want to add height to a tiered cake without adding alot more cake, or for using as display cakes. Maybe you make wedding cakes and want to create a display for a wedding fair.

How to cover a dummy Cake tutorial

When purchasing your dummy cakes, they come in so many shapes and sizes, but from experience I know it’s not always possible to get the exact size you need for the cake you want to create. So in the tutorial I not only show you how I cover the dummy cakes with fondant but also how to cut and stick them together if you need to create a different height from the ones available. So if to want to see how to use your cake dummies just click the tutorial below.
