I have had a couple of brides want the design of a large cake but don't need the actual cake to feed their small wedding. What I don't understand is how using a styrofoam tier is any cheaper or can be offered as a cheaper way to go? The styrofoam costs just about as much as it does to make the cake and then the expensive parts (fondant, gumpaste etc) used for decorating it are all still used, so how does this option cut costs down??
How do you price your fake tiers in comparison to your real cake tiers?
Please advise! Thank you so much!!!!
