Sorry - not sure where I should post this really. I'm going to be making & decorating my own cake for the wedding. Going to do one tier of fruitcake and then ice another 3 tiers of styrofoam dummy cakes. Will leave some other sheet cakes in the kitchen for cutting also. The problem is, I'm having severe difficulty in sourcing some styrofoam dummies, will need a 4", 6" and 8" Have emailed kitchen compliments, but can't see any on their online website. Have found a few on UK websites but are all charging around £20 delivery. Not even having much success with ebay. Can anyone recommend any where else I could try? Thanks!

Hi HelloDolly, Crafters Basket in Cliffony near Sligo have them. They mightened be on their website but give them a ring. Also try Cake Box in Dunlaighre (sp?) or Decobake in Clane. Just a little tip when you get them, run sandpaper over the edge where the top meets the side. It just rounds it off a little which will help stop your icing from tearing on the sharp corners. Good luck Kx

Postage was so cheap compared to everywhere else I looked. [quote="Bm10":37qhkw8b]Just a little tip when you get them, run sandpaper over the edge where the top meets the side.
