3. Fake Wedding Cake Renter

Since wedding cakes are becoming more and more expensive by the minute, cakerental.com now offers cakes for rent. According to their website “The main cake is covered with real fondant with the looks and feel of a real cake in every aspect, however the inside is made of foam and there is small compartment to place a small portion of edible cake for the ceremony. After the couple’s “feeding each other” act, the display cake is taken back into the kitchen and the guests are served regular sheet cakes from the local bakery or wholesale store.”

4. Professional Cuddler

Yep, it’s real. You can actually rent someone to cuddle up with. Nope, not weird at all…You can hire a professional cuddler and he/she can charge up tp $80 an hour. Some cuddlers even make up to $400 a night for their services! DAYUM, SON!
