Part of my wedding was fake. I had a beautiful two-tiered cake, the bottom was styrofoam and the upper was a real cake used for the cake cutting ceremony. The reason I had a partial fake cake was because we opted for a dessert bar with chocolate fountain, cakes, cookies, brownies, etc. It was one of the best decisions we made. The baker told me it was a lot easier to handle and deliver the cake. Everybody was happy!
