How To Rent ‘Shark Tank’s Funcakes So You Can Literally Have Your Cake & Eat It Too

“Funcakes is for anyone who wants to throw a big fancy event, but not necessarily throw down an entire paycheck for something out of Cake Boss that people are just going to end up shoveling into their mouths anyway. When you look at it that way, it actually makes a lot of sense.”

S6 E04 Week 3: FunCakes Rental

FunCakes Rental is changing the future of the wedding cake, one cake at a time! Our cakes are covered in real fondant and gum paste, just the same as a real cake. The only thing different with our cakes is the inside is foam. Each cake has a hidden compartment in the back of the cake, where real cake can be placed. This way couples can still cut the cake and feed each other. The cake is then wheeled to the back, where you have fresh sheet cakes waiting to feed your guests, saving you a ton of money!

Underneath it is Styrofoam and they’re called cake dummies. It is exactly the same as a real cake that you would get at a wedding only the inside is different, thats all. Who would want a fake wedding cake made out of Styrofoam? Well, the brides kept asking for it. A real cake can cost from $300 up to $1,000 and i think maybe 20 years ago the design was kind of boring for a cake, you had a lot of frills and a lot of strings, but today going were it is just endless.

You can really make your cake personable. It can be about you and your groom and your wedding colors so everybody wants that, but not everybody can afford that. Her company is based outside grand rapids and she rents her fake cake for shell custom design them and ship them in wooden crates all over the country. And Kim says your wedding guests will never know the cake-a-fake.

This is how it would be delivered to the bride and groom and then they’re just going lift up and pull out a piece of Styrofoam peace and then that is the pocket they’re going to put their real  frosting cake.

It is very hard to tell. I cant tell the difference. Those custom-designed fake cakes are very labor intense to create and Kim tells me the reason she can rent them for $100 is because she can use each one for half a dozen weddings. If you’re interested in more information about the fake cakes go to the consumer page of our web site, clickondetroit.Com. I have three weddings next month, I think I’m going to be checking out the cake. No, cut on that side
