What We Use to Make Fake Food

This content was written for Just Dough It!

Have you ever seen advertisements and wondered how they get the food to look so perfect in them? Are you puzzled on how to get your fake food displays to look so real? Do you question what kind of voodoo must be taking place in order to create something that is fake, yet look so realistic? Here at Just Dough It!, that’s our speciality! We create fake foods so realistic, you’ll want to eat it! Let’s take a look at how this is done, and if you’re ready to make a purchase, give us a call!

With more than 20 years in the biz, we’ve learned a thing or two about creating products for our clients. One of the most important things we have learned, however, is how to treat our customers. Customer service is very important to us, which is why we don’t mind sharing a little behind-the-scenes with them when they ask how certain things are made. If we were in our customers’ shoes, we would have questions, too! So let’s take a look at how we create some of our top selling products at Just Dough It!

We receive a lot of orders. Some are minor orders for personal use, and others are major orders for big media productions. Each order, however, is made with the same attention to detail as the other. So what do we use to make some of our top-selling products? Cakes are made using a styrofoam base and the icing is from a rubberized material. Yep! The cake is styrofoam! The fake beverages are made using a poly resin that sets up to hard plastic. Salt dough is used to make cookies, donuts and tart. Salt dough is easy to make at home, too, for those do-it-yourself crafters out there. Syrups (like on ice cream sundaes) are made using hot glue. How neat is that? We make all of this in-house, plus more. Custom orders are some of our favorite orders, too. So if there is something you want that you don’t see listed on our website, give us a call and let us show you what we can do.

Each item is made using high-quality materials. This allows for our products to last for years, as long as they are used and stored properly by our customers. We work very hard on our fake food to make them look as real as possible. Our products are so realistic that they have been featured on Rachael Ray, The Muppet Movie, Funny or Die, and many more. And our customers give us the best reviews and referrals. You’ll be blown away at the quality (and costs) of our fake foods!

Creating prop foods is so fun. Does it take time and a lot of attention to detail? Of course! But here at Just Dough It!, we love creating products for our customers. We love to help our customers understand the business, so if you have questions on how we’ll complete your order, let us know. We can make anything with custom orders and only use top-of-the-line materials. Don’t wait any longer, call Just Dough It! and place your order today!
