Where is your venue in SF? There is an amazing baker from Sonoma County that makes delicious basic cakes (no fondant) and is very reasonable. I couldn’t use her as my venue is too far.

Try to find newer cake bakeries. We found one that just opened in her own shop in November and she’s been doing cakes for four years. We’re getting a two-tier cake, custom-made to how we want it, for $250, plus a nominal delivery charge.

Cake prices are so crazy! I went to cooking school for 8 days and learned how to do fondant cakes and sugar flowers for less than the cost of many people’s cakes! (And I was worried I wouldn’t get my money’s worth out of those classes… I’ll make it up on just my own wedding!) If I were you, I’d just go to a bakery and pick up 3 regular cakes and stack them (You could order them ahead of time just don’t call it a wedding cake!) I don’t find safeway cake to be that delicious, I’m sure there’s a million deleicious little bakeries in SF where you can get regular cake

If you ask the bakery at Safeway, Walmart, Costco, and other grocery stores, they will normally show you a book of wedding cakes and give you a quote that is MUCH less than typical bakeries.

A wedding cake isn’t really just three sheet cakes stacked on top of each other, unles syou are talking about three sheet cakes of wedding wuality cake, which is not the same as the birthday cake you buy at the grocery store. That cake would squish under the weight.

You can, however, get a simple cake for 100 people for $500 or so.
