Top 5 Ways to Save on Your Wedding Cake

The advice given in this blog came from a recent post on The Bride Link’s group page. Thank you to all the vendors from the group who gave advice to help make this blog possible.

#1. Avoid Customizing

Choosing simple flavors and a simple, elegant design, will always save you money. A simple wedding cake can be transformed into a designer wedding cake by adding fresh flowers, ribbon, or berries.

#2. Instead of one big cake, consider a few single cakes. 

If you love custom flavors, consider what bride, Carrie Waller, did for her wedding. As you can see below, Carrie chose a variety of flavors to serve. She said she payed the same for these variety of cakes as she would have for a large single cake.

#3 Order a small tiered cake with a sheet cake. 

A great way to cut costs, is to order the cake of your dreams in a smaller version and then have a back up sheet cake with the same flavor. Below, is a small, gorgeously detailed cake by The Perfect Endings Custom Cakes. 

#4  Consider a Cake Toper with Cupcakes!

Serving cupcakes will cut the mess and the cost of a server to cut your cake.

#5 Don’t have a Wedding Cake at All!

If your heart is not set on having a wedding cake, consider a dessert table like the one below from The Baker’s Rack.
