I’m getting mine at Publix. All I want is a simple 3 tier white cake, nothing fancy, and I didn’t want to spend over $500.00. I LOVED FH’s brothers cake at their wedding so I asked where they got it and it turned out to be Publix! So for me this was just a money saver 🙂

Michelangelo’s,  Its an Italian restaurant on Sam Rittenberg.  I looked at Public’s but I didn’t like their fondant work and the price was the same as the estimate from a cake specialist after my military discount.  I didn’t want American butter-cream icing and couldn’t use a whip icing because of the decorations.  Mines going to be Italian Meringue butter-cream (not super sweet), Bavarian Cream w/rasberry cake for the large tier and topper and a Almond cake with lemon meringue and blackberry drizzle for the second tier.  I will admit public’s has good cakes just wouldn’t work for my dream cake.  Talk with Jackie, my mom was impressed with the options.

I hired Molly at D’Lish. The cake was exactly what I wanted and her cakes taste A-MAZING!

I love D’lish! I think we are going with Wedding Cakes by Jim Smeal. Not sure yet though because we may have a family friend who is an insanely talented cake maker outside of Charleston do it. We have to figure out the logistics first!

@Ms.Charleston Pearls: Just my two cents, but I know someone who has tasted Jim’s Cakes before and says that his works looks amazing, but taste dry and flavorless. I have never tried it myself so I can’t speak personally, just wanted to let you know in case you hadn’t done a tasting yet! You may taste it and find it to be delicious.

 

@SoonToBeMrsWilson: We are meeting with them in November so I don’t know how the design will turn out, but we did a tasting with The Cake Stand in May and OMG it was the most amazing cake I have ever put in my mouth, and I’m not even a cake person! I highly recommend them based on taste and price alone.

We are also going with D’lish.  She’s been wonderful to work with since I’ve had to do everything over email and the cake tasting box was amazing.

I am doing Publix. I like the way their cake tastes, and they have a simple non-fondant design that I think will work for me. Plus I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money on something that I wasn’t really passionate about.

We are getting a smaller version of this and I am putting the flowers on myself.

@SoonToBeMrsWilson:

We’re getting married on the 30th of July, and we don’t live in Charleston, it’s a destination wedding for us and we decided on using the cake designer “Wedding Cakes By Jim Smeal”. He’s really good and is a true professional.

Would anyone mind sharing where they got their cake, the pricing and number of servings?? We’re trying to work on our budget and this is an area we have no idea what to expect!

@Pink Peony: We haven’t gotten our cake yet but we’re going through Jim Smeal. For 125 guests it is going to be $850.00 plus $40.00 to rent the cake stand and a $100.00 fee to transport and set it up. So like almost $1,000 for everything, but he’s awesome and can do anything you want.
