I usually don't watch Good Morning America, but while flipping through caught this. Another "rent a dummy cake, buy grocery store sheet cakes" article.

At least it didn't say order a custom fake cake and it'll be super cheap.

I find it interesting that it didn't say how much it cost her to rent the cake! LOL Just how much the sheet cakes cost.

The article mentioned $12 instead of $600 for th cake, but I couldn't figure out if they meant $12 worth of sheet cakes or $12 for the styro cake. Either way, it doesn't sound "real".

If anyone is doing a display cake for $12, everyone here on CC needs to hunt that person down and smack the buttercreme outta them!

It said a "fondant and buttercream" covered fake cake. Heck the fondant alone would cost more than twelve bucks! icon_eek.gif

That has to be a typo...I assume it's $120 total, not $12. That would be $40 for those SUPER DELICIOUS grocery store sheet cakes, and $80 to rent the dummy cake.

God, how my mouth is watering just thinking about how great that grocery store cake must have been...Come to think of it, why don't people ever think to cater their wedding receptions by getting food from the self-serve salad bar at grocery stores? Maybe that should be the next brilliant suggestion they give in these types of articles!
