10 Good Reasons To Rent a Wedding Cake



With the rising cost of weddings and the demand for new styles, many brides have started requesting a dummy wedding cake. At first, Jane at Singleton’s Kitchen, was not that enthusiastic about the idea, as she took much pride in offering many combinations of fresh baked wedding cakes . But after looking into the idea, and doing a few dummy cakes, she decided to be flexible and began to offer cake rentals to her clientale.


If you, as a cake decorator, are interested in a cake rental concept, here is a list of great reasons that Jane Singleton recommends to relay to your bride.

Why rent your wedding cake?

1. It's a better fit for the bride on a tight budget; she can have the cake of her dreams at a fraction of the cost. Sheetcakes can be cut in the kitchen and served to the wedding guest in lieu of a costly tiered wedding cake.


2. The bride has a better chance of booking her wedding date because the cakes can be assembled and decorated ahead of time.


3. Delivery and costly set up fees may be saved if the bride opts to pick up the display cake and sheet cakes before the wedding.


4. If planning an outdoor wedding, a dummy cake reduces worry of invading insects, bees or other pesky critters . It is also less susceptible to damage caused by high temperatures during the summer months; thus allowing the wedding cake to be prominently displayed during the reception from the beginning to the end.


5. Sometimes reception venues add a cutting fee into the package deals and the bride might be unaware she is paying for it. If the charge is per slice, that fee could add up to a hefty amount, sometimes as much as the price of the cake itself. By renting a dummy cake, these extra charges can be avoided.


6. The bride can order her dummy cake via the Internet having it shipped to directly to her home address. UPS is able to package and ship to insure a successful delivery.


7. One may choose to rent the wedding cake with an option to purchase.


8. The designs are limitless because dummies can be made in almost any shape.



9. No special clean up needed. Just return the cake intact to the decorator.

10 Now a bride can have her cake...and eat it too!
