Cake walk

Want the effect of a big cake without a big price tag to match? At FunCakes Rental you can have your cake and eat it too! The company creates beautiful centerpiece cakes that you can rent to display at your wedding. The cakes are covered with fondant and gum paste just like a real cake, but the insides are made of foam. There's even a small compartment where you place edible cake to use to feed each other during the reception. "You rent the hall and tuxedo," says owner Kimberly Aya. "So why not rent the cake?" You can choose from any of Kimberly's pre-designed cakes (about $150 plus shipping) or custom order your own design ($250 plus shipping). The cake will be shipped to you before your wedding day in a wooden box—after the party, you just place the cake in its box and drop it off at any shipping store. —Kathryn Papanek
