No guesses on prices. I’m sure it largely depends on where your wedding is regionally. 


I can tell you I shopped here in Central Florida for a very simple cake for 80 and my quotes were between $300-$480.

If it is out of budget, why not get a small cake for cutting, and then serve sheet cake?

I am a baker in North Jersey, use to be a Pastry Chef in NYC….If we are talking about NY pricing it could be about $9-12 (even 15) a serving without the flowers. As for how I would price it, about $4-6 without flowers. It depends if you are more lienant with the lace appliques or require the chef to make/buy a special mold. That mold doesn’t look familiar, so I assume it’s a custom mold.

I would also guess *upwards* of $10 per slice, depending on your location.
