@Purple_Bride:  I inquired about having most of the layers of the cake made out of styrofoam, and two different bakers told me it wouldn’t save very much money because most of the cost is in the labor, not the supplies.

If money isn’t a concern, and you just want it for the look – go for it!

We won a fake cake for our wedding and then got an extra large cupcake for cutting 🙂

We’re doing a dessert bar with mini brownies, teeny cheesecakes, etc. My sister (who is a pastry chef) is making us a small 6″ cake to cut, but we would not be having one if she wasn’t gifting it to us. I would shy away from doing a full-size fake cake if I were you as people might not know it was fake and expect to get cake to eat. I would do either a just a small cake or cupcake, or maybe for the chocolate fountain you could hold a piece of fruit together on a skewer and feed one another bites?

Our cake had 3 tiers but only the bottom was cake, the rest styrofoam. we did the traditional cutting of the cake on the bottom layer. we got to take home all the rest of it so yay 🙂 we had other things for dessert instead.

I wanted a chocolate fountain too!!! I am such a fan haha… But so many people discouraged me from getting it coz it tends to get very messy, so it’s really only pretty in the beginning. Just a headsup, hopefully yours will turn out great. I’m really quite jealous haha 🙂
