5 Tips to Get Cheap Wedding Cakes...
See if any local bakeries are offering specials or discounts for inexpensive wedding cake. If so, see what options are available and whether or not they can give you a good deal.
Rather than dealing with a private bakery or specialty cake stores, try searching for at-home specialty bakers. Such a person will be able to make you a beautiful wedding cake for less than HALF of what a private bakery would charge you.
If you've chosen to get your cake from a private bakery or pastry chef, consider sacrificing a few of the cake's fancy designs & decorations for a cheaper per slice price. Remember, “simple & elegant” is just as good as “fancy & expensive”.
Go with a cheaper wedding cake icing rather than one of the more expensive ones. Instead of marzipan or fondant icing, go with the cheaper, yet still very tasty, butter cream icing.
If you have a friend that has a talent for baking, ask him/her if they could bake the wedding cake as a gift to you and your husband (or wife). If they can, well, you've just save hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, of dollars!
Quick Note: When it comes to finding cheap wedding cakes, be sure to always get a sample of the baker's work. It's great if the wedding cake is cheap, but that won't really matter if the cake tastes like dung.
