Hi all, to save money we are having a large dummy cake for our wedding to save money.

However we would still like to serve our guests a nice slice of cake each.

I don't want the cheapest of cheap, but just ain nice large cakes to serve.

Can anyone recommend a supermarket cake or similar?

Thanks in advance

My daughter bought a nice plain iced fruit cake in Asda when she got married. Was a few years ago so not sure if they still do them. If not how about the plain sponge photo cakes they do but without the photo??

I'm sure sainsburys used to do plain white iced fruit cakes in different sizes to use as wedding cakes. I don't know if they still sell them but they do have a white iced 'decorate yourself' madeira cake.

M&S used to do wedding cakes for slicing so you could have the dummy cake out for photos and it was just simple iced cake for cutting. I don't know if they still do them but I'm.sure other places might have a similar idea

You could get some reduced iced Christmas cake in the sales, once it's sliced, no one will know it's Christmas cake. Pre slice it and wrap it individually.

I would go to the local college and see if anyone doing catering would like to take this on as a project or for experience, you wouldn't expect to pay full whack.

Costco to buy but best of all is make your own. Maybe someone you know would make you one as a wedding present.
