Necessity is the mother of invention. The father is unknown.
The following patent was issued by the US Patent and Trademark Office on April 4, 2006.
Simulated Wedding Cake
patent#: US 7021465
How does one "invent" a simulation? Isn't a simulation, by definition, a copy? And by simulating a wedding cake, wouldn't one be inviting a black tie revolution? For goodness sake, let them eat cake.

I wonder if you can get a simulation wedding package. Will include the simulated sneering in-laws, drunken uncle bringing up the (insert his life failure here), slutty bridesmaids, the picky whiney aunt, robotic speeches of the best man who thinks you are making the biggest mistake since that naked ski trip, the 80's hair-hasbeen-cover band and last but not least the simulated white lie you call a wedding dress. You could have the feel of a real wedding in the comfort of your own home! If you buy your simulation now, we will throw in the expensive photographer and the controlling mother simulation! Void where prohibited.

I think it's a carrot cake and those plants are the ends of the carrots. The carrots themselves are obviously inside the cake. Scrumptious.

Okay, I'm just confused. Are those plants growing out of a cake or what? Seriously, if you can tell me, email me.

Well yeah, the inventor has a strange idea about what to use this for, but Bakeries should love this. They could have demo cakes to show the various design elements that they use when making real cakes. Customers could mix and match elements and design their own cakes. For tasting, the bakeries could keep an assortment of plain layer cakes with different flavor frosting combinations. They would save a TON OF MONEY, and the demo cake would be a much better sales tool than a phot. Damn I'm good, and humble too!!

I wish I had a nickel for every time the word 'plurality' appeared in this patent!

Hmmm, sounds like the inventor re-invented the cake.

You would throw the cake instead of eat it ????

For those who didn't read the whole patent, the "plurality of tulles" that decorate the cake can be used to distribute confetti or birdseed to the guests. That's what makes it an "invention" and not mere mimicry!

I haven't been to a lot of weddings but I always thought the "chucking confetti" (or confetti substitute) bit came after the ceremony (formal) bit and the "cutting cake" bit came after the speeches and food.

Simulated garter and bridal bouquet not included.

I wonder if you get a simulated wedding license with this? After all, most marriages seem to be set up for the 'long haul' of two or three years these days....
