You should sit down and explain the logistics of this and provide him some examples of “fake” cakes and exactly what you are talking about.  Pull up some posts or blogs that talk about it.  I don’t think that it is a good idea to just ignore his thoughts on this.  You run the risk of making him feel duped.  I just don’t think that is a very good idea.  I really believe that the best thing is for the two of you to sit down and come up with a consensus.

I agree with tksjewelry that you should definitely do soem research and have a dicussion with him. We did the fake cake and sheet cake and it worked out perfectly.

Some pros:

1) easier for catering staff to serve the sheet cake

2) could have more options for sheet cake

3) no fondant on the sheet cakes

4) the fake cake can be on display for the whole reception

5) you can keep the fake cake on display at home 

6) less waste

Honestly, I would at least try to listen to your future husband’s wishes; work together to try to make a real 4-tier cake happen (assemble it yourselves or by a trusted relative, have someone interview

It’s his wedding too.

If, in the process of trying to make it happen, he realizes that the sheet cake is a better idea, then you both are happy.

What about compromising? Maybe a 2 tier DIY cake- much easier to assemble 2 tiers rather than 4 successfully, then you could use fresh flowers to decorate on sight. Then have sheet cakes to serve the guests. Personally, I am not a fan of fake cakes (I’m not even having fondant on mine bc it tastes fake to me)- although they always look nice.

Does he know how much a 4-tier costs?? That would have been enough to convince my DH! 🙂
