Were all familiar with the reception centerpiece . Typically, its a towery confection of sugared flowers and pillowy cake layers frosted to utter perfection. Theyre beautiful.Theyre delicious.And it will cost you. The idea is simple: Ask your bakery to use fake cake tiers instead of the real stuff. Trust us, its more common than you think. You can still have the beautiful reception cake of your fairytale dreams but, instead of serving it to guests, have a sheet cake waiting in the wings. The faux cake can be decorated just like theversion that would run you somewhere around $4.50 per slice. Thats $540 for 120 people. When you figure somewhere around a quarter to half the guests will only hurriedly take a forkful before bee-lining it to the dance floor, this might start to sound more appetizing. Ask your florist to pretty it up with fresh flowers that match the bridal bouquet. Even with the added blooms, youll still clock in under what you originally budgeted for your cake.
