Fake Cake

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies, has anyone ever brought or thinking of bringing a "fake cake" to take pictures with? I really don't like the look of the cake that our resort offers so I thought of bringing a fake cake with us? Suggestions? Thoughts?

I'm probably not a good person to answer, but carrying a fake cake down sounds inconvenient to me just for a photo opp. With such a gorgeous setting there will be plenty of other awesome pictures and memories!

 

But, honestly, the cake is easily the lowest on my priority list. I'm not even doing a cake topper or decorating the cake table - and I'm not planning to stop the party to formally do a cake cutting. As long as it is delicious (I do love to EAT cake) I don't care! :)

I don't like the cake options that they have given us, that's why I was thinking of bringing a fake cake. I too don't plan on stopping the party for cake cutting however, I do want the traditional pictures with the cake.

I think it's a great idea , my wedding was in February and the cake I picked looked nothing like the photos the resort had shown me.  Everyone will be too busy having fun to even notice the fake cake I'm sure :)

I think it would be difficult because I thought with the fake cake you still have to decorate it with fondant and stuff

I think it fake cake could work, but it seems like you would still have to decorate it right? Or if it's pre-decorated, bringing it to your destination without worrying about it getting damaged, might be a hassle. If the cake options at your resort aren't up to your taste - can you ask them to do something simpler and maybe give them some inspiration photos? Perhaps just decorating it simply with just flowers?

 

Or, how about cake alternatives?!? Check out this article I posted here on the forum a few weeks ago -- cake doesn't have to be the only option :Phttp://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/5-wedding-cake-alternatives-you-your-gues-r2248

 

Hope that helps!! Let us know what you decide ;)

I agree with some of the ladies here. I think that us brides tend to overthink things (my coworker was just telling me this haha) especially when we have so long to wait for our date..it gives even more time to think and doubt, and doubt some more. Is your resort willing to decorate it a different way? My resort was offering a very boring white cake with a few carnation stems on top. I bought a gold cake topper and I've requested for them to do coral rossettes.. (i'm paying a bit extra, but it was worth it for me as I am stopping to cut cake and i'm decorating my cake table).

 

If you have your heart set on an artificial cake then you should do it, but it just sounds like a bit of extra work with lugging it down there. Most of the time everything else will outshine the cake in pictures anyway.

I think I am overthinking this whole cake thing....I guess us brides tend to do that. Although, I still think its a great idea, it may in fact be a hassle getting through the airport. Every bride that has gotten married at our resort, says the same thing about the cake. Its awful looking and even though you send them photos, it always turns out nothing like it. I have a specific vision I want for the cake and I will truly be disappointed if I end up with a very ugly one. After all, it will be in my wedding pictures for the rest of my life.

@@Lisa35 Are you able to pay to upgrade the design or anything? Like I mentioned before, the basic cake at my resort is very plain and not much to look at.. I paid a bit to upgrade the icing/colour etc. Out of curiousity, do you have a picture of the cake that they offer? I'm dying to see it now.

My resort made our cake nothing like the pictures. It was hideous. When it came out I was upset but now I laugh about it...it was crazy how wrong it was . I have so many other pics that it doesn't matter at all. It tasted delicious though!

 

Why don't you just get a plain white cake and bring a cake topper ? How bad could they get that?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
