@mudrat2:Are you saying the whole cake is fake? I don’t see a problem with it if you want a certain look for your wedding cake but your wedding guest list is much smaller.

LOL!  I went to a wedding that had a fake cake once… Nobody knew until they didn’t cut or serve any cake.  I asked a BM and she fessed up that the bride and groom weren’t cake people, so they just had a dummy cake made.  That was a bit disappointing, to be honest.  They could’ve at least sprung for some Costco sheetcakes at $17/each to serve to those of us expecting “real cake”! :-p

@seven12:  Right????  I would have been majorly disappointed in no cake to eat at all.

I wish I had gone that fake cake route. Our cake was AWFUL. I’ll get over it one day but to be honest, if I had imagined our cake would suck that bad, I would have made some time to make my own damn cake.

I wish we could do fake cake. The cruiseline is handling it, and with the number of guests we’re expecting, we’re looking at a 3 tier cake for 50ish people. If it doesn’t all get eaten at the reception (and it won’t) they offere to serve it during dessert every night at dinner. We are not cake people, so there will be a lot of waste and they won’t knock out a tier.

I think if you compare the price of  a real cake vs a fake cake you still spend quite a lot on a fake cake to me it just isnt worth it.

Haha, that’s awesome :). We had a 100% fake cake. Our venue has a bunch of fake cakes decorated by some guy from the Food Network Channel. They’re very pretty, but it’s not why I wanted them. It’s because they feed guests these absolutely amazing mini cakes when you get them. They were sooo good. No one really seemed to care. 

It wouldn’t have bothered me if they did. After all, if you’re served amazing cake, what’s there to complain about? 😉 

Here’s a picture of the pretty foam :).

to defend the fake cakes….we are doing the top layer real and the other 2 layers fake.  we decided this because we have a huge desert buffet that has cakes and pastries….it was cheaper this way and we won’t have a huge amount of left over cake.  my FI’s cousin got married and they had a 4 tier cake with 3 tiers left over cause no one ate it.  also with a fake cake, it is only costing us $180 for a 3 tier cake.

(Oh, we served sheet cakes to the guests, so they didn’t know.)
