Wedding Budget Tips Wednesday: The FAKE 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 an elaborate cake and don't have the money for it, then this can be a good alternative.

 Pro 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.
