Slightly Chamfered Cake Dummy

Hi,

I used to get my cake dummies from a company that Paul recommended a couple of years ago, he used them all the time. They custom made dummies which were great from Cake International competition cakes as they did dummies which had a slightly chamfered edge…so not round but not entirely sharped edged either, just slightly which made them easier to ice. I have been searching for that company but I cannot remember what they were called and dummies direct and cake dummies.com don’t make them. Any ideas as to which company this was??? Thanks in advance 🙂

The edge can be smoothed down with fine sand paper or simply use your rolling pin and rub it on the edges to make it rounded. It’s a bit of a faff but it works, just go gently so as not to dent the polystyrene.
