Sure, today it may be trendy to serve rented fake cake but, mark my words, tiered jello molds are the next wave for budget nuptials. Fruit cocktail, of course, is extra.


I used to work at Walt Disney World. They actually do this there for wedding receptions at their hotels. They have these huge elaborate cakes, and from what I understand the cake itself is inedible, with the exception of the bottom tier for "show". After the first piece is cut, they cart the thing off back stage and feed everyone sheet cake for thousands of dollars. Theyve been doing it for years.


Sounds like pure Staten Island to me.

That being said, when I got to tour Martha Stewart's HQ a few years back, she had an entire room FILLED with fake cake tiers covered with frosting. Apparently that's what they photograph for the magazines and whatnot. It was the first time I'd really though about it and it made sense.

I just started a Rent-A-Fake Cake business in my local area. I have put to together a
"Start your own Rent-A-Fake Cake Business Package" which will allow individuals to start their own Rent-A-Cake business in their area. I have had many brides from all over the US inquiring where they could Rent-A-Cake in their town or near location. Due to high shipping costs it is not feasible to ship a Rent-A-Cake to the bride and then have her ship it back, she might as well pay for real cake instead, I will provide the ground work for anyone interested in starting their own Rent-A-Cake Business. Visit my website for more information and cost to setup your own business venture in Rent-A-Fake Cake.
