Watch out, fake wedding cakes can look so much like a real cake you'll have to look twice!
When you first look at an absolutely, beautiful wedding towel cake you will not believe it's not a real, edible cake.
Creating a useful and memorable gift from bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths can be both beneficial and makes a great gift for the guest of honor.
When planning your wedding table decorations, you want the most spectacular centerpiece to enhance the whole room. Well, guess what? A fake wedding cake is the answer.
You can give one as a wedding shower gift, as well. Even at a wedding shower, this fake cake just brings so much life to the gift table (not to mention the talk of the shower)!
Here's one that I made:
Some fake cakes you see are Styrofoam with fondant icing covering it. Some actual wedding cakes are made of Styrofoam on the bottom and a real edible small cake on the top. All the work that went into making the fondant flowers and decorations are a waste of your money.
Our fake cake is useful, practical and serves as a fabulous wedding gift. It is made of items that all newlyweds can use - towels, hand towels and wash cloths.
So, which one are you going to use? A fake, fake cake or a real fake, fake cake?
That's a great question. Let's look at what it's made of.
When you look at it, the last thing you see is towels, but that is what it is made with. With bath towels for the base, hand towels for the center tier and wash cloths for the top tier, you can see how useful it is.
Inside the cake you may find extra surprises. Some may have a shower curtain, bath mat, bath products or gift cards that you can't see.
What a nice surprise when it is unrolled to find all these extra things that are useful as well.
This gift is going to be much appreciated, memorable and useful.
When you want to make one, you will need gather all your "ingredients". This includes the towels, hand towels, wash cloths, surprises and outer bows, ribbon and attachments you want to add.
Begin by folding your bath towels the width you want them and start rolling from one end to the other. Once you have the base completed, do the same thing with the hand towels and then with the wash cloths. These tiers will be your layers.
If you do choose to add extras in the middle, roll them up inside the layers as you build your tiers.
Once stacked, add your outer decorations as much or a little as you desire. Using the color scheme makes a nice touch.
That's it! It sounds simple, but it is very time consuming and is not as easy as it sounds.
It takes a lot of creativity and passion to make one of them. Of course, you could learn to make them yourself. Practice, practice and more practice will pay off in the end.
It's not easy to get started, but with a little motivation, you can do it!
