GRANDVILLE, Mich. (AP) - For the budget-minded bride and groom, a new business is offering a less costly alternative to buying an expensive wedding cake: renting a fake one.
The idea is to have an elegant, multitiered pretend cake for show while serving guests slices from a real, tasty and inexpensive sheet cake.
The inside of a faux wedding cake crafted by Fun Cakes in Grandville contains mostly plastic foam, with a secret spot reserved for a slice of real cake to be shared by the bride and groom. Everything is covered by gum paste and fondant, a frosting-like confection made from sugar and water often used in cakes and pastries.
After a bride and groom take the traditional first slice of their real wedding cake, it's often wheeled away from guests, out of their sight, to be cut up and served on plates. Do the same thing using a fake cake and a sheet cake, and guests will be none the wiser.
"The only difference is the inside. nobody can tell," said Kimberly Aya, whose 3-month-old company also bakes real cakes. The online version of her business is called CakeRental.com,
How Much Does it Cost?
The price of the cake depends on you and how big (or tall) that you want it.
If you order a cake from my gallery the cost is a flat $100.00 plus shipping.
You can also custom order your cake with your own design. The basic three tiered cake
is $150.00 and each additional tier has the following cost:
6" or 8" = $35.00
10" or 12" = $45.00
14 " or 16" = $55.00
All cakes require a $200.00 deposit for the return of the cake.
Once the cake has returned your $200.00 will be refunded.
