    I always thought it was kind of silly because it seems like it would be just as cheap to decorate a cake instead of foam, but I ended up going with an entirely fake cake, and guests will be served mini cakes. It’s pretty weird, but that’s what my venue offered and the mini cakes were so freaking delicous that I couldn’t pass it up. So…yeah, I would totally do it.

    If it actually saved money, i’d do it! But, we didn’t get charged a cake cutting fee, and fake tiers weren’t any cheaper for us, since decorating a foam tier takes as much work as decorating the real tiers.

    I like it when they send the cake home with the guests. Which often happens when dessert is served.

    I am going for a bunch of faux tiers! I am having 50 people and still want a statment cake! As far as the money goes.. it is working out a bit cheaper! Either way, I would rather have foam to toss than waste food! Just IMO

    I wouldn’t mind doing fake tiers. However, I’ve only seen this paired up with sheet cakes in the kitchen. What if people see all that “cake” and want some, but you run out because there is only one real tier? But there’s definitely nothing wrong with fake tiers IMO. 🙂

    I thought about this, but in our area I couldn’t find fake tiers for anyless than real ones, so I just got the cake.
