CUTTING WEDDING CAKE COSTS

Cutting Wedding Cake Costs, The wedding cake is probably one of the most important parts of your wedding. Once you’ve selected the right Melbourne wedding venue and the beautiful bridal gown, the cake is next. Without a good wedding cake, the ceremony just isn’t complete.

Cutting Wedding Cake Costs

The downside of wedding cakes is that they can be VERY expensive, though it’s worth it for the beautiful, decorative dessert. However, we’ve got a few tips to help you save a bit on your wedding cake:

ELABORTAE = COSTLY

You’re not paying the cake maker for the ingredients, but you’re paying for the time and work spent on your cake. If you want to keep costs low, you should try to keep the cake simple.

TRY TWO CAKES

Instead of having one huge fancy wedding cake, go with a smaller wedding cake and a large cake that the servers slice to feed the guests. The smaller wedding cake will still be very fancy for the ceremony, but you save a lot when it comes time to serve the cake when you cut up a simple, cheap cake.

REDUCE SLICES

Cakes aren’t priced per tier, but the cost is estimated per slice. Not all of your guests will eat a piece of cake, so reduce your list by about 10 to 15%–for example, you only need 85 to 90 slices of cake per 100 guests.

USE DECORATIONS TO MAKE IT BIGGER

Instead of having a huge cake, use decorative items to make it look fancy without raising the cost of the cake. Decorated non-cake layers are super cheap, but they will make your cake look beautiful.

GO DECONSTRUCTED

Instead of making a multi-tiered cake, try the deconstructed look. This means placing the various layers of cake not on top of each other, but on separate plates side by side. This will be much cheaper, as most cake makers charge extra to stack the cakes.

STICK WITH SQUARE

Round cakes are the classic wedding cake, but a lot of the cake goes to waste rounding it out. Fancy shapes are much more expensive, so stick with a simple square cake if you want to keep costs low. Plus, it’s easier to cut, and you’ll often get more bang for your buck when it comes to feeding guests. Cutting Wedding Cake Costs

KEEP THE FLAVOURS SIMPLE

Instead of trying a hazelnut bacon coffee liqueur flavoring, why not stick with chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry? The premium flavors are delicious, but they always cost more.

GO FOR BUTTER CREAM

Fondant may look pretty, but it’s at least 20% more expensive than butter cream frosting. Cutting Wedding Cake Costs

USE FRESH INGREDIENTS

Instead of sugar-paste flowers, why not use chocolate kisses or freshly sliced strawberries to decorate the cake? You’ll find that these ingredients are much cheaper.
