This isn’t cake — this is an obscenity

With the talk of cake and weddings, I’ve learned a few things over the past few weeks.
-Weddings are political. As much as people tell you how you should do your wedding, they always have their own opinion of who to invite and what to do.
-When going to a bridal bazaar, never wear the ‘bride’ sticker. It keeps the vendors guessing. In fact, DO NOT go to a bridal bazaar. It’s just madness.
-If you even mention the ‘w’ word in a blog, the emails start pouring in from potential vendors. Always use an email address you can purge later.

A delicious looking, but fake cake.

So with cake tasting well underway, I’ve rediscovered fake cakes. Essentially cakes that look real but are styrofoam shapes with gloss paint tinted to look like frosting.

The fake cake trend started a few years ago where in place of a real cake, these impostors were used and guests were served cheap slab cake to save money. An interesting idea but having a cake is absolutely nonnegotiable.

For those of you that are inclined, fake cakes can be rented, purchased, or to follow in the footsteps of Amy Sedaris, made.

Still I wouldn’t mind having a fake cake around.

  1. I am learning so much about the wedding process that others don't write about! Renting a fake cake and then serving up some cheap ass Costco sheet to the guests? I LOVE IT!!! (Seriously, I do…)

  2. Ok, somewhere along the way I missed that you got engaged! (I blame the baby.) So, my belated congrats!!!And cake tasting was definitely our favorite part of planning! Enjoy!

  3. My cousin had a very small wedding, and used a fake cake to create the appearance that they had a big cake. Sort of tromp l'oeil. But a fake cake so that they can serve knock off cake? Blasphemy!

  4. Nanette–Thanks! It's actually been a while since we've been together for a long time.Cara Mia–LOL! Yeah, it's pretty horrible especially when the fake cake costs as much as a real cake.
