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!
Be sure to consider your budget before you let your imagination get the better of you. You want your wedding day to be one of celebration, not the day that you started your journey into financial disaster. Many people are surprised at the cost of a wedding cake. Keep in mind that you are asking an artisan to create a masterpiece for you, and this can often be reflected in the price that he/she will be charging. The cost of labor is often the largest expense in the creation of a wedding cake but keep in mind the simple fact that fondant is more expensive than buttercream.
As you may have noticed, certain small details can really raise the price of your wedding cake. One of the most important things to keep in mind, when choosing a cake, is the amount of people that you plan to serve. Part of your price depends on the number of guests that you will have. This is one reason why cutting the guest list can always bring down budget costs. This is especially true if you are paying for a cake that has pricing that is based on the slice. For instance, if you have a cake that is $1.50 per slice and you are inviting 300 people, your cake without any décor will be $450. So one way to keep costs down is to keep the guest list as small as possible.
