Did You Catch the Kind-of-Genius Wedding Cakes on Shark Tank?

On a recent episode of Shark Tank, a mother-and-son team appeared with a fascinating wedding cake idea. Here’s the deal: They own FunCakes, a company that rents out impressive-looking cakes covered in real fondant, but inside it’s styrofoam. A hidden compartment in the back allows some real cake to be slipped in so the happy bride and groom can “cut” the cake and take photos of the whole process (including smashing it in each other’s face if that’s your thing).

There are six full pages of cakes to rent, but this blooming beauty is called the Sylvia, and she’s one of the priciest ($999 to rent, while the majority of the options hover between $300 and $500). The idea is you’d have this on display, take your photos, and it’d be wheeled to the back, like a normal cake, where instead of being sliced up, a simple sheet cake would be distributed to guests.

My husband didn’t quite understand, and I explained that wedding cakes can be crazy expensive, and for the girl who wants the major moment with a cake, this might be a brilliant budget-saver.

Do you think this is an ingenious idea? Would you consider it for your wedding?
