Before you meet with the baker, you need to have a sure idea of what you want in a wedding cake. If you dont, going to the baker or any other wedding vendor, for that matter, can make your budget grow in a matter of minutes. As an example, think about buying a house. You dont usually go house hunting unless you have a good idea of what your buying budget is. You have to know how much house you can afford. The same thing applies to planning your wedding and meeting with your baker. Make sure you have a firm idea of what your budget is and what it can get you before making any visits, because the first thing you will see before you even meet the baker are the beautiful wedding cake displays, which can carry you into another world.
Here are five ways you could save money on your cake and still have a delicious centrepiece to be proud of: Ask for your cake as a wedding present. If you cant afford to splash out on a luxurious wedding cake yourself, think about whether there are any guests coming to your wedding who would like to pay for your cake as their wedding gift to you. Close aunts and uncles or grandparents often want to make a special contribution to the big day so its always worth dropping a few hints. Make the cake yourself. Making cake isnt as difficult as you might think and as long as you give yourself a few practise runs and you follow the recipe carefully youre bound to be able to produce something youll be proud of. Cupcake towers are the easiest DIY wedding cakes to tackle, and you can have great fun icing them with your bridesmaids, but you can also try a traditional tiered cake if youre feeling brave. Combine your wedding cake with dessert. Wedding guests are often so full from the wedding breakfast that they dont really feel like eating wedding cake, so it makes sense to save a little money and serve your wedding cake as a dessert. Many couples are choosing unusual cakes such as wedding cheesecakes or ice cream cakes that make fabulous centerpieces for the first two courses of the wedding breakfast and can then be served up immediately afterwards. Minimise the size of your cake. The high cost of a wedding cake often comes from the fact that it needs to feed so many guests, but this doesnt have to be the case. Many cake suppliers will offer a package that includes a smaller decorative cake to feed approximately half of your guests supplemented with the same flavour tray cake, which will work out a lot cheaper than a full-sized wedding cake. Decorate a supermarket cake. Many supermarkets offer great quality but affordable celebration cakes covered in simple white icing. These can be dressed up with coloured ribbon and costume jewellery or fresh flowers to create a really personalised design that works seamlessly with your wedding theme; your guests will never guess its not a designer wedding cake!
What about the cake provided by the wedding reception site? What about ignoring it? That cake is being outsourced to a baker skilled in the creation of wedding cakes, then its being brought to your wedding and added to your bill with a nice profit markup for the reception hall. There is almost no instance when it makes sense to order this cake over one you can get direct from a baker.
