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!
First, lets focus on the different shapes of most cakes. The shape of your cake is very important because it can affect the number of people that can be served and the price as well.
How many cake pieces do I need? All you need is this formula: # of Guests - 10 = Number of Pieces needed. Are wedding cakes coordinated with the reception flowers and other decorations? You bet they are. In fact, wedding cakes are often the centerpiece of the décor for many weddings. Your baker will be familiar with his/her role as it relates to dressing up the cake for the wedding. But you should always discuss specifically what the baker will do upon delivering the cake. Sometimes the florist decorates the cake, but many bakers are happy to use the flowers that are being used for your wedding. But that means the florist needs to set aside some flowers to be used as cake decorations, and that means the flowers need to be delivered before the cake is delivered. See how that all ties together?
