Fake wedding cake trend?

im_nomad | Jan 5, 2008 06:42 AM

a couple of weddings i've been to have opted for a fake wedding cake instead of the real deal......basically styro forms covered in icing.....and then a cheap slab cake is ordered from a bakery to hand out to guests.. Even get pictures taken "cutting" the fake cake. Has anyone else noticed this trend? I know weddings cost a lot of money and people view this as a cost saving measure.....but as a baker, it bothers me for some reason.
