    My friend is having a fake cake made by her grandma I think. It is a family tradition and they look pretty real in pictures and whatnot. The guests are getting cupcakes. I think it is a neat concept, and in many cases budget saving too.

    It seems a little silly since it won’t even have a layer for the cake cutting but since it’s getting rolled away I don’t think people will really notice that you never touched it!  Most of your guests will just be happy to have cake regaurdless of where it’s cut from 🙂  I’d save the cash and just do it!

    If no one knows it’s fake, and it doesn’t look fake and the minis taste better, I don’t see the problem!

    As long as what is served tastes delicious as a guest I wouldn’t care. As a bride, I’m not sure how I feel about a display cake.

    I don’t see the point of having it be completely fake. You don’t cut it for pictures, you don’t eat it, you just look at it. Honestly, that seems kind of stupid.

    I would probably choose to not have it and just go with the minis.  I don’t see the point in having it if its just kind of hanging out there.

    I don’t like the idea of fake cakes when they’re still on display after guests are eating the cake.  If they roll it away and nobody sees it, nobody knows, then I don’t see a problem with it.

     I have been waiting so long to get married and have my tiered cake and cut into it with my hubbie.  That is why I would want a real cake.

    I should also note that a wedding cake was number 1028465 on our list of priorities. We had a little mini cake with our cupcakes, but we never cut it. It came home in one piece. No one asked why we never “offically” cut our cake, everyone just enjoyed the cake buffet and cupcakes.

    I kind of have to agree with the PP about it being a little silly. I wouldn’t necessarily buy a whole cake if that is the alternative (I didn’t vote in the poll), but I’d rather have mini cakes and no fake cake if it was only to look at.

    Personally it would take a lot more than $200 in savings for me to have a fake cake.  You also don’t have a top layer to freeze for your first anniversary.  I’d get a real cake.

    At first I voted for silly, but since it’s cheaper, I’m not sure.  Maybe if you think about it as being part of the decor, like a beautiful centerpiece, instead of an edible cake……I don’t know…….good luck! 🙂  Oh, and I’d love my own mini-cake if I was your guest, how cool!

    Save the cake! I bet that fake cake will look better than a bakery one anyways. I love this idea!

    I don’t get how the “cutting” goes. Won’t guests notice you’re not cutting the real cake?
