Choosing the right kind of cake for your wedding can be a real hassle. Between finding a baker, deciding on a flavor and selecting a style, there's a good chance you'll end up spending more time messing with this glorified pile of fondant than anything else on your to-do list. And wedding cakes are expensive -- really, really expensive. In fact, for a bride on a budget, paying for this one dessert may cost you that luxurious reception site or (gasp) even force you to return a night or two early from your honeymoon. But it doesn't have to be that way. Have your cake and eat it, too, by faking it.
What is a fake wedding cake?
Fake wedding cakes are exactly what they sound like. They're round Styrofoam molds covered with fondant or Perma-icing (a type of non-edible, artificial icing), and they look just as good, if not better, than the real thing. In fact, like high-end wedding cakes, most fake cakes are custom-designed for your wedding, so you can choose the color, style, number of tiers and ornamentation -- including options like silk, fondant or real flowers -- when placing your order. Regardless of how you decide to fake it, you'll still get to cut the cake, and your guests won't go hungry.
The top tiers of most fake cakes are real. This is the part you'll cut, share with your new hubby, and save for your one-year anniversary. The counterfeit confection will then be wheeled out of sight, and your servers will return with slices of sheet cake to feed your guests. Some versions of fake cakes are entirely inedible, with a hidden compartment holding a couple of real pieces for the bride and groom.
Why You Should Fake It
We know, it seems like an elaborate hoax. But even if you're having a relatively small ceremony, you can expect to spend at least several hundred dollars on a basic, nondescript wedding cake. Brides with larger guest lists will end up paying hundreds more, and if you'd like to sweeten the deal with fancy fillings, gourmet frostings and a few fondant flowers, this once-in-a-lifetime dessert may cost you a month or two's salary.
A fake cake, on the other hand, will be the centerpiece of your reception. Just like any other wedding cake, it will be custom-designed according to your preferences, and it will probably cost $300 or less. By choosing a fake cake, you'll also avoid those half-baked cake-cutting fees that many reception sites charge, which can range anywhere from $1.50 to $4.00 per slice, depending on the venue. Going with a fake cake gives the impression that you forked out for a top-tier cake, but you'll pay only a slice of the cost.
Maybe your having a dessert buffet or venetian hour? But you still want to do the cutting and feeding rituals for pictures. Maybe not everyone eats the cake so why pay for all those servings?

Our designs include cascading flowers, arches, and more, the ideas are endless!!
The Wedding Rituals:
Slicing- Our faux wedding cakes are designed with a hidden slit where a knife can be inserted for wedding photos of the slicing. This will provide the "look" of the bride and the groom cutting the cake.
Feeding- A small piece of cake can be placed within the fake wedding cake so the bride and groom can still perform the usual wedding ritual of feeding each other. So you can have your cake and eat it too! A wedding cake can cost upwards of 800-1000 dollars, or more. In one case the bride was quoted $3,000 for her wedding cae and we did our fake version for 700!! What’s more, ANY wedding cake can be made into a fake wedding cake.
