An alternative wedding cake.
Planning for the “big day” can often be a stressful and expensive experience. There’s a lot of pressure to make sure everything’s perfect so that guests enjoy themselves, while also trying to not break the bank.

One of the most essential items that can put a dent in your wedding fund is the wedding cake. However, there’s an alternative cake option that could save you between $200 and $400. It’s called: FunCake.

As a 3-tiered, Styrofoam display, the FunCake is covered in real fondant and decorated to look just like a traditional wedding cake. There is a single removable piece inserted into a section of the display to allow newlyweds to act out the traditional cake cutting for memorable photos.  The guests are then served delicious sheet cake or torte that is already cut and ready to be served.

The FunCake is designed to bring the tradition of a wedding cake to the celebration without the added expense of actually making it. Each cake can be ordered three days prior to your wedding, and is prepared as a 3-tiered (12″ bottom, 8″ middle, 6″ top), fondant wrapped, Styrofoam cake on an acrylic plate.

    We picked the pearl “happily ever after” for our November 5th royal blue, pearls,& silver themed colored wedding. Our cake was perfect for pictures! The guests complimented on how beautiful our cake was. The quality of the sheet cakes for 200 guests blew everyone away!! We picked vanilla buttercream, inside was half vanilla with buttercream & half vanilla with fudge.
    We have our fun cake for display at our house. It will last forever. Including a “nice size cake” for the bride & groom, 4 sheet cakes for 200+ guests, your pick of a fun cake 3-tiered realistic cake with a slot open for bride& groom cake cutting & pictures, your choice of guests cake. The bakers at Jewel were amazing! For everything it was $420.00 & that included shipping for the fun cake. The baker made our guests cake the night before! Kudos Jewel & Kimberly-founder of fun cakes

    If I just wanted the fun cake, without the actual cake, is that possible, or, what is the smallest sheet cake, including the price that I would have to buy in order to get one of the tiered fun cakes for the ceremony. (We have cupcakes already ordered, however, my daughter wants a cake on display.)

    • Customer Support 17/07/2018 at 9:09 pm

      That’s a great question, Jill. We recommend speaking with the bakeshop at your local Jewel, as they will try to accommodate your request if they can. -Cornelius

    Hi,
    I wanted to place an order but the Jewel in Lemont doesn’t know who to contact. They said they don’t have an order form or phone number of the vendor so I was unable to place my order today. Any suggestions on how I can order?

    • Customer Support 20/08/2018 at 11:43 am

      Hello Holly, thank you very much for reaching out to us. We will have the store reach out to you via Email on this matter. Thank you! -Wendy
