The great part is the reduction of your stress level. You are not working late to finish a cake or cakes for a weekend wedding. If you make your samples with very little colour you can change them to suit most weddings with ribbon and silk flowers or interesting toppers. This takes just minutes.

Like dummy cakes?
If they are'nt edible and only considered decoration then I don't see why not.
But from what I've heard they are just as much work to decorate as a real cake minus the baking so make sure you charge accordingly.
Good Luck

If you have a faux cake business you have stock cakes that are easily changed to suit your clients needs. They are rented out multiple times.
If a client wants a custom cake you charge the regular price plus add on extra for the custom design. This cake then becomes part of your regular inventory. Money is made after the cakes are rented out several times.

Do you have to be licensed and registered as bussiness?
