Why Rent a Faux Cake ?
By Eleganza Cakes
More and more brides are seeking cost-effective ways to have the wedding of their dreams. A beautiful cake is always a part of the dream wedding, but can be cost prohibitive. The prices of real wedding cakes have come to an all time high in the last few years. Many couples are choosing to eliminate the wedding cake as a way to save money. Instead, brides can rent an elegant display cake for their cake table, and have their caterer serve a delicious dessert that is most likely included in the venue package. Hundreds of dollars can be saved displaying a faux cake. Eleganza Faux cake rentals start at $50.
When you rent the cake of your dreams, you will receive a cake that looks identical to a traditional fondant cake at a fraction of the cost. Faux cakes can give you the look of a luxurious wedding cake without the enormous price tag.
Cutting the cake is easy too. Have a small real cake (or cupcakes) already cut and placed behind the faux cake at cutting time. You pose for the photographs ‘cutting’ the faux cake and then feed each other a piece of the real cake. It is super easy and no one will notice that you haven’t actually “cut” the wedding cake. If you tell your guests that the cake is not real they will not believe you.
Many brides who choose artificial cakes do so because they want the tradition of a wedding cake but do not want to serve cake to their guests. This is often the case when a bride is serving a special dessert as part of the meal or dessert is included in the caterer’s package.
Artificial cakes are perfectly suited to outdoor weddings – they will not droop or melt in hot weather and bugs are not an issue.
Faux cakes are visually identical to real cakes. They are still covered in real fondant icing and are decorated just like a real cake.
If you are not serving your cake as dessert you should consider a faux cake. Real cakes are often left uneaten if used as part of the evening buffet. Many brides have reported that most of the cake was not eaten at the end of the evening. With a faux cake you will not have unnecessary waste and expense.
Faux cakes are also light and easy to move around, although the icing and other decorations may be just as fragile as a real cake. You can even take the cake to the venue and save the delivery cost.
Faux cakes are a way to afford a cake that is larger than you actually need. You are able to have that six tier masterpiece for a fraction of the cost.
Faux cakes allow you to view your cake exactly as it will appear before your wedding. If there are any changes to be made there is still time. There will be no surprises with a fake cake.
Don’t forget that many venues will charge a $1.00+ per slice cutting fee. For a 200 guest wedding your real cake will cost an extra $200. With a faux cake there are no extra charges.
Faux cakes allow you to have a beautiful centrepiece on display for the whole evening.
These are just a few reasons to consider a faux wedding cake.
