Although this is a fairly new trend in the world of weddings, many couples choose to have a fake cake at their wedding instead of a “real” one. Why is that and what are the advantages of going for this option? Make sure to read on if you want to find out more!
- Fake wedding cakes are made out of polystyrene foam and they are decorated in a way that makes them look 100% like the real cakes. The frosting on the outside is usually edible, but the inside of the cake is completely inedible. However, a fake wedding cake can still make for a marvelous piece of décor, especially since it can perfectly imitate any kind of wedding cake design out there.
- The main advantage that comes with having a fake wedding cake is related to its price. A real cake can cost as much as several thousands of dollars, while a fake one can cost as low as $500. Thus, a fake cake will allow you to save a lot of money on your wedding expenses, which is precisely why so many couples settle for this option.
- Furthermore, you should know that are virtually no disadvantages to having a fake wedding cake. For example, you can serve your guests slices of a cake that is less ornate (and thus, less expensive). Also, you can have the “Cutting of the Cake” moment too. All you have to do is order a fake cake that’s topped by a real one, which will allow you to actually cut into the cake when the big moment arrives.
