The fake wedding cake trend has caught on very fast – and these days, more and more couples choose to follow the trend as well. What is it about the fake wedding cake trend people love so much and why would you choose to follow it too? Here are some of the most important things to know about it:
- Basically, this kind of cakes look like “real” cakes but are made out of polystyrene foam and covered in real cake icing and/or fondant. A real wedding cake’s price starts at $1,500 in many cases, while a fake one can end up costing as low as $500. Therefore, a fake wedding cake can save you a lot of money, so you might want to consider it especially if you are running on a tighter budget.
- The outside of the cake can be customized according to your wishes – just as it would be with a real cake. By opting for a fake cake, you can have a marvelous piece of décor for your wedding reception without spending a fortune on it.
- By choosing a fake wedding cake, you don’t have to miss out on the “Cutting of the Cake” moment at your wedding reception. For instance, you could have the top tier of your cake be made out of “real”, edible ingredients so that you can cut it with your spouse in front of the guests. You can also have a pre-sliced fake cake too and you can pretend that you actually cut it out.
- Your guests will not be left without desert though. You can buy a less expensive and ornate cake and ask your waiters to serve the guests with a slice after the “Cutting of the Cake”.
