Some brides on a smaller budget opt to have a fake display cake to save money. These Styrofoam-based decorations are put out on display (either alongside real cake layers or by themselves), while the cake served to guest is pre-cut sheet cake in the kitchen. After the cake cutting ceremony, the wait staff can take the cake away with the pretense of cutting it in the kitchen. For many couples, these display cakes are the best of both worlds: the chance to have a fantastic cake while still sticking to their budget.
