Man, what is next??????
I guess it's a good idea to save money and still get a huge beautiful cake. But I wouldn't have bought one for my wedding. It just seems a little weird. But with the economy how it is today, I bet they are making some bucks with it.
I wonder how many weddings one of these rental cakes would last...5, 10?
I don't know but, I'm still not convinced it's worth it.
Rent the fake cake for thirty bucks????
Oh please, let them be my competition! Because at those prices, they won't be my competition for very long.
What are these rented cakes covered with?
Sorry I just don't get people like this now-a-days!! Come on people. Fake cake??? NOOOOOOO!!!!!!
I have to say, my own personal opinion:
Go Real Or Go Home!!!!
Okay let the cake flinging begin...
I was totally thinking of this yesterday when I was recalling my own wedding cake. (which sucked by the way, buts thats another story)
Myself and two siblings all had our weddings the same year within 4 months of each other (I know our poor parents)pun intended, so to say my budget was tight was an understatement.
I was thinking this would have been something that would have been GREAT and should I offer this if I ever open a business, because I will not do wedding cakes otherwise (Bridezillas are NOT for me).
Of course I was ready to rent my dress too, but my Mom put her foot down. (probably would have nixed this idea too)
People spend way to much on this one day some go into debt , and for what? A white dress you never wear again, flowers that die the next day, a cold dinner and 5 tier cake that gets cut up????? (of course I mean NO OFFENSE to anyone here. The cakes here are amazing and the work put into them is worth every penny!!)
I know, I know, it sounds trashy and cheap, but I think its practical.
I am holding up a tarp to take cover behind
kake4me2, I agree with you about the price of weddings. I guess it's my age, but it seems like weddings have become an even more elaborate performance than they were even ten years ago, forget 30 years ago. Renting a cake is just part of it- all show and no substance.
I was raised in the 'cut your coat according to your cloth' school of money management. If you don't have a Donald Trump footing the bill, plan a smaller more intimate wedding. Order your dress from Target, ask aunt Millie to make your cake -it may not look like the magnificent creations we see in magazines, but if aunt Millie is a good baker it will taste nice. Use the church hall for the reception and serve brats and beer/lemonade if that what your budget looks like. Stop trying to impress others with an event that doesn't reflect who and what you are.
A young couple who start their marriage in debt for an over the top wedding may find that the debt can last longer than the marriage.
lol to get the fake cake for $30 you have to order the "kitchen" cake from them. Otherwise the rental cake is $100.
