Does anyone know how to make fake food? My husband is restoring an old car and I wanted to surprise him with one of those trays that hang on the side with the food on it or even the spilled fake food.

Thanks,
Audrie from PA

eBay sells some pretty cool stuff like that and I have also found a place called Abby's Attic (www.abbysattic.com) that sells faux (fake) foods.

Try RecipeLion.com. In search box for example put "Faux Fruit Leather" or "Mock Apple Pie" etc. I have seen recipes like this on there. Also there is Mr.Food.com and FavHealthyRecipes.com. Good Luck. I hope you find what you are looking for. : )

Does anyone know how to make those fake cakes? It looks like the frosting is made of plaster of Paris.

By GrandmaV from SF Bay Area

You can also use a type of frosting called "fondant" which is rolled smooth and then place on the cake. You can find a recipe for "rolling fondant" at www.foodnetwork.com

You can make them easily with styrofoam and Royal Icing. The icing gets rock hard and will last indefinitely, as long as it's not exposed to humidity.

Polymer clay makes the prettiest candies you've ever seen and most definitely very life like! I made some years ago and everyone that came into my home would try to eat them. lol I can't tell you how many have reached and popped them into their mouths before I could stop them. They look exactly like the old fashioned hard Christmas candies. You can make them any colors you want and any shape you want and they last forever!

I am trying to tint resin to pour into coffee cups that will look like real coffee. So far I have not found the perfect combination or dye. Does anyone know what to use?

Coffee-brew yourself a cup and use some to tint the resin. I did tea that way, coffee should work the same way.

Be sure to let the coffee cool so that it doesn't act as a catalyst too early in the process (lol, ask me how I learned that one!).

I want to make a fake wedding cake for displays. Any ideas?

Diana from South Carolina

January 2, 20070 found this helpful

Traditional bakeries use styrofoam bases covered in, and decorated with, the actual icing that is used on their wedding cakes. It dries, to form permanent displays. If their "icings" are a type that won't dry properly, they use a Royal Icing (egg white based icing) that dries hard. Sometimes these display cakes are iced with a thinned plaster/joint compound, but be careful that it dries white, because they look really bad when they yellow or someone tries to paint them white.

If you go to a craft store that carries Wilton products, they sometimes also carry styrofoam "cakes" in all shapes and sizes. The styrofoam is more like the kind they used to make coolers with - not so porous. I found this out the hard way, when I was asked to make a display wedding cake, and bought styrofoam circles from Michael's and had to glue numerous ones together to make a full layer. In all, I used about 12 pieces, in 3 sizes, when I could have bought 3 pieces in the heights I needed. Live and learn! I did mine in Royal Icing, which hardened almost immediately, so work quick, but to this day, the hotel is still using that cake! they keep it refrigerated to be safe, but it has stood up beautifully. Good luck!

How do I make faux champagne for a prop?

Resin is probably the best choice, very lightly tinted with yellow dye (go to the your local craft store and ask them about resin).

Why not use Sparkling grape juice of sparkling cider? They are non-alcoholic and in a bottle that resembles a champagne bottle.

Ginger ale can look like champagne. If it's not going to be drunk (if it doesn't have to tip when the glass does, add gelatin to solidify it. Resin has been suggested. That would be good for a one-time project. From the stage, I don't think you can tell about what the liquid is. Apple juice, diluted, isn't tasty, but would be thrifty.

When making a miniature cream pie (artificial), how do you lighten up the caulk that is used for the topping? I would like it to be a little bit fluffier. I'm making miniature ones with filo clay, no hole beads and need a light fluffy topping to look like meringue.

This made me laugh at the thought of "caulk" on top of a pie- is that a regional word for cream or topping?

I am wondering about the caulk too. Caulk. As I know it, is for fixing things like cracks.

I need to clarify my "mini" cream pies. I'm making miniature ones with filo clay, no hole beads and need a light fluffy topping to look like meringue.

Editor's Note: I added this comment to the main post so you will get more appropriate answers. I was confused too :)
