Artifical Or Fake Wedding Cake for the
Budget Consicious Bride

Hire An Artifical Wedding Cake

Having an artifical or fake wedding cake is the perfect solution if you want an elaborate wedding cake to show off as a stunning centerpiece. Many wedding couples still want their big dream wedding, so wedding cake rentals are now beginning to take off.

However, if you are planning to make one yourself, here's a little info for you; fakes cakes are made of soft foam called Styrofoam and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They either come in solid or hollow shapes. Some popular shapes are round, square, hexagon, heart shape, rectangular, singular, tiered, different sheet cake sizes, small cupcakes, oval and even lopsided whimsical tiered shapes. The fake cake is usually frosted with an icing that is made from gum paste and fondant and beautifully finished off and decorated with either fresh flowers or elaborate sugar artwork. If you are planning to have your cake professionally decorated by a cake artist, just remember, all that elaborate work takes time, so it may end up costing just as much as a real wedding cake.

Fairy Godmother tip! Another option is to have the entire bottom tier made with real wedding cake and tiered with fake tiers on top. It's your choice - you can rent, make or buy a fake cake.

Wedding Sheet Cake is Cost Effective

Sheet wedding cakes are the most cost effective of wedding cakes. They are made in your chosen flavour and professionally frosted - without the tier assembly labour, sugar flower decorations and intricate cake decorating costs. So you still get to serve delicious designer wedding cake to your guests minus the added extra costs. Your wedding guests will be none-the-wiser.

THREE Options When Choosing Artificial Cakes

An artificial wedding cake can be all fake or mostly fake and partly real. The real part of a tiered fake cake has a secret compartment at the bottom tier where a large slice of cake can be placed in for the bride and groom to share. The secret compartment is also great for the cutting of the wedding cake photo's. No one will know.

Below are the three options for choosing to go faux. Simple sheet cakes can be bought to serve wedding guests a slice of the delicious wedding cake at a much lower cost, there's no need to pay for hidden costs; tier assembly costs and intricate cake decorations.

1. Real & Faux Wedding Cake Bakery:

Choose a wedding cake bakery that makes fake cakes and combines it with real cake at the bottom tier - perfect for the cutting of the cake photo's. Your wedding cake will resemble your very own dream cake. You can save money buy having wedding sheet cakes pre-made to serve to your guests.

2. Make a Fake Wedding Cake:

If you are planning to make a fake wedding cake, you can buy ready made single or tiered foam wedding cakes from an online store that specialises in fake cakes and the accessories needed to create and apply the icing. Then make your own sheet cakes using your favourite sheet cake recipe. Your guests will never know the difference.

3. Rental A Cake - Company:

Rent a wedding cake and have sheet cakes made and served by the wedding reception staff. Rental cakes are made to look like real cakes, then real wedding sheet cakes are used to serve to the wedding guests. A neat trick, but it works a treat.

Although renting fake cakes is a more recent idea, they can be custom made and designed to suit the bride's individual taste and needs.
