i think it depends how much detail is going into it. we’re not doing cake so i didn’t do much (any) research.

I think it sounds alright, but I think prices are kind of regional. Anyways, my mom has a wedding cake business and she charges anywhere from 300-500 depending on how detailed the design is. And that’s on the east coast of Canada! 🙂

Our cake fed 54 people and was two tiers and cost $380. We just did buttercream and a simple polka dot decoration.

I only know per-slice breakdowns. Did your baker give you that?

I’ve seen prices ranging from $3 per slice up to $10 per slice here in Nashville depending on the cake baker (reputation) and the complexity of the design.  I hope this helps.

I am making my own cheesecakes 3 different sizes and a friend of mine used to do wedding cakes so she is doing my 20 cupcakes.  Thank God because I do not have the money for a cake.

I just realized, I never answered the question. We went with a private baker who only does cakes as a side business. They are delicious! Anyway, our cost for homemade buttercream icing, custom cake design, bavarian cream and raspberry filling was 1.60 per slice. Our groomscake is chocolate with nut-butter filling.

We’re in OK, where everything is cheaper, but our total for wedding cake serving 120 and custom carved groom’s cake is right around $400 with tax (that’s for buttercream, no fondant, with 1 filling in each of the 4 tiers).

I found a lady with her own business who charged $2.50 per slice putting me at $375 and a flat fee of $75 for the grooms cake. All the other bakers were abour $4-5 a slice. Don’t forget cake cutting fees if they require it!!
