So I had no idea where to post this, but I'm a student photographer and I need to make some fake cakes (props) for a Marie Antoinette shoot I'm doing.
I have a bunch of styrofoam from packing materials that I can use for the base, but what should I do for the outside?
I thought about using real fondant, but I'd rather not use something edible.
What about using that crappy crayola clay that will dry out and get hard?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!!
