Now here’s a novel idea – rent your wedding cake. Yes, you read that right. Here’s how it works…
You rent a pre-designed wedding cake. It looks like a real cake, complete with fondant icing, but it’s actually decorated foam and plastic underneath. In a ‘hidden compartment’, a real piece of cake is deposited and this is what you and the groom cut. The cake is then whisked away into the kitchen for ‘cutting’ where a sheet cake is waiting to be cut and served to your guests. You literally get to have your cake and eat it too.
Pricing for fake cakes can run from $75 – $500 on average, while real wedding cakes can be double or triple the price. Some companies will ship for free – best to check with them directly, as different companies have different policies.
