Your idea is not much different from when brides get a mostly fake cake and then serve sheet cake to their guests, except that your "sheet cake" is fancier mini-wedding cakes. If you’ve got the budget to afford the fake cake (which I found can actually be pretty expensive), why not go for it? I would just plan to have only the smaller layer(s) be real cake on the fake cake, or else you will have a lot of extra cake that would go to waste.

Fake cakes are surprisingly not as affordable as you’d think.  I can’t remember exactly, but when I did the research it wasn’t as cheap as I thought. Honestly, since you’re having individual mini-cakes, why not just have one small cake for you two?  Something that looks like the top tier of a traditional cake, or maybe just a small two tier cake for the two of you to cut.

I think if you’re going to have cute little mini cakes, you should skip the big cake all togeher. That’s a lot of money to spend on cakes. Just get a smaller cake to cut if you want to or skip that and get yourself a tiny cake!

fake cakes cost the exact same as real cakes because styrofoam is as much money as simple eggs, flour and sugar. the money for a wedding cake is the result of the decoration.

 Here’s a thought – get the baker to make you a small 8" cake similar to the min-cakes and out a fabulous topper on it. that way you’ll have the ability to ‘cut the cake’ symbolizing the start of dessert.

I love the minicakes.  so cute.  but pricey.  but if you can afford it, go for it.  but I agree with everyone about the bigger cake.  WHat you should do is have a slightly larger version of the minicakes for you to cut, and all you need to do is put it on a pretty pedestal, I am sure you can find a smaller than normal one.  I think that would be completely fantastic and unique.  I think to spend the money on a fake cake just for decor purposes is unnecessary.  And you could make the small cake really pretty for a lOT less money!

I had to look, and found these http://www.linensource.com/default.aspx?page=productdetails&pattern=TRU&cm_mmc=PaidSearch-_-PM-_-Googlebase-_-TRU527723&sender=external which are so adorable!  I don’t know your theme, but something similar would look beautiful!
