Dummy Tiers & Cutting Cakes

Dummy Tiers

Many brides and grooms like the idea of a four tier cake but in reality this is too much cake for the number of guests. In such situations an extra polystyrene dummy tier is iced and decorated to look exactly like the rest of a wedding cake, producing a magnificent, taller masterpiece and your guests will never know that one tier is not actually a cake.  Some of the cakes in the “Wedding Cake Galleries” have been produced on dummies for wedding fairs and other exhibitions.  You won’t be able to tell the difference!


Extra Cutting Cakes

Some brides and grooms wish to keep one tier of their wedding cake intact for future occasions.  In these circumstances you may require more cake especially if you feel the wedding cake does not serve enough guests. Cutting cakes (also known as kitchen cakes) will be made to your choice of flavour and covered with icing to match your wedding cake, but they will not be decorated.  On delivery of the wedding cake, the kitchen cake is taken to the kitchen where it will be cut and served with the main wedding cake. Kitchen cakes are available from £40 for a 6” square or £50 for an 8″ square cake to make up the number of portions.
