Sheet cakes are a wonderful addition to wedding receptions because they fit nicely into any budget. Sheet cakes are cost-effective, don’t require extensive decorations, and in the event that you need to add additional cake, it is far cheaper than asking your baker to re-create your cake in the weeks before your wedding .
Many brides initial thought about sheet cakes may be, ” I don’t want a simple, basic, rectangular sheet cake on display during the reception”. Problem solved ladies, go fake! Bakeries can create a “fake cake” that looks real to the eye yet is made out of styrofoam and decorated like a real cake. Often times you see “fake cakes” on display at bridal shows. To keep the illusion going bakers put a small cake on the top or the bottom tier so when it comes time for cake cutting guests will never know the cake is only for looks. The big reveal will be when the reception staff cuts and serves sheet cakes.
