Where to Buy Fake Wedding Cakes

Let’s handle a few FAQs about fake cakes first.

What Are Fake Wedding Cakes?

A cake… that is fake, but looks real!



Fake wedding cakes are usually made of Styrofoam and gumpaste, fabric, or fondant. It is designed to look like a real cake.

Can You Still Do A Cake Cutting With a Fake Cake?

Yes! Many fake wedding cakes are designed to have a ‘slice’ removed, so it looks more realistic. Or, we’ve seen some cakes that are three-tiered, with the top being the only ‘real’ cake (the bottom two are dummies). So, yes, you can still do a wedding cake cutting.

You can have a small one-tiered cake made just for you and set it aside. It’s not exactly the same, but you get the idea.

Can I Still Add a Cake Topper?

Yes, and we recommend it! A cake topper can add a fun personalized touch to your wedding, faux or real!

Can Anyone Tell If I’m Using a Fake Wedding Cake?

Probably not. I mean, it’s not like anyone is going to actually go up and touch it. In fact, many guests totally miss the cake at the beginning of the reception anyway, and the cake cutting happens almost immediately (right before dinner). And many times, a couple will have a really gorgeous wedding cake, but it’s not big enough to feed everyone. That’s because there are sheet cakes in the kitchen, and your caterers will be serving cake to guests from the sheet cake anyway. So, who will know?
