    My cake ended being $540 and a $60 delivery charge so $600. It’s 4 square tiers and feeds 175. The baker is upgrading it by doing the shimmery gum spray (no idea what it’s called) to make it look more like fondant, throwing in the edible pearls for free, and no charge for the cake stand (just a rental deposit I get back when I return it). Definitely ask if paying for cash would make it cheaper. Mine went from $690 to $600 bc I paid all cash at one time.

    (Sorry for the picture being sideways)

    I think we paid $450 or so for a cake for maybe 85 people. It was absolutely delicious, but very simply. I’ve ben married before, and the first time, we had a fairly elaborate fondant cake with buttercream underneath (since fondand tastes gross) and that one was like $1500 maybe for 100 servings. So to me, this was a steal, plus it tasted better (though both we good, just the cake this time around was simply amazing).

    We had coconut cake with coconut buttercream and key lime cake with white chocolate cream cheese frosting with fresh raspberries (beach wedding in FL!). The cake was covered in rough buttercream.

    Our cake was roughly $9 a slice when it was all said and done. However, quite a bit of that went into the details…
