What are Dummy Cakes ?
Dummy Cakes or cake dummies as they are generally referred to are polystyrene blocks cut to the shape of cakes. Dummy cake tiers can be used to add extra height to a wedding cake to give the wow factor.
These imitation polystyrene shapes can be cut to almost any shape and size enabling a cake decorator to make some very bold and interesting designs. Styles of dummies have changed over the years, with the height of the cakes becoming much more prominent. Real cake is not only expensive, but the weight of a fully decorated multi tier cake is substantial.
