DUMMY WEDDING CAKES
Over our many years of making wedding cakes, we recommended our dummy display cakes decorated as you wish with a side slab of your desired cake flavour to serve to your guests.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DUMMY AND STANDARD WEDDING CAKES?
The only difference between a dummy and a standard wedding cake is the filling on the inside. We use a mix of polystyrene and plain sponge so you can still cut through it for the photo.
The side slabs are decorated on top with the same style as the display cake so your guests will be none the wiser.
The only people who will be able to tell the difference are the chefs in the kitchen cutting or plating it up.
IS THERE A PRICE DIFFERENCE?
Providing your dummy wedding cake is proportional to the amount of cake you order on the side, the difference in price is minimal and depending on the decoration style may be slightly more or slightly less expensive than a standard wedding cake of the same size.
Only our Chocolate Mud Cake and Torta di arancia are strong enough to be built into barrel and tiered cakes.
If you are wanting any other flavour then our dummy cakes with side slabs is the way to go. Additional to Chocolate Mud Cake and Torta di Arancia you can also choose from:
Black Forest, Brunetti Rocher, Chocolate Fondant, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Souffle, Con Amore, Cookies & Cream Cheesecake, Francese, Julio Cesare, Le Parisien, New York Cheesecake, Nocciolato, Opera, Pear & Cheese Crumble, Pistacchio Opera, Nutella & Ricotta Cheesecake, San Remo, Sotto Bosco, Svizzera and Torta.
By ordering a dummy wedding cake, there are many more flavours to choose from, you can order the perfect portion size and amount of cake for your guests, and the portions are easily cut into perfect neat slices (tiered round cakes are often roughly cut into mismatched portion sizes leaving wasted off cut leftovers at the reception).
Another benefit of ordering a dummy wedding cake is the decreased risk and stress of something going wrong on the day. In our many years of supplying wedding cakes our drivers have always delivered them in perfect condition, but we have had some horror stories where the reception staff has damaged the cake and our talented chefs have had to come and fix them on site or even make another last-minute emergency wedding cake.
STILL PREFER A STANDARD WEDDING CAKE
If you still prefer to have a standard wedding cake, of course, you can order online from one of our wedding cake range or contact us below and include a photo so we can quote you on a cake filled with either Torta di Arancia or Chocolate Mud Cake.
Customised acrylic cake toppers are also available. please mention them when you contact us and send us a photo of the design you would like.
