I’m getting married downtown. Our guest count is somewhere between 90-95. Our cake will be displayed from about 7pm to 10pm. The venue manager said that we should go with buttercream since whipped cream will go bad in that time. I just want a really simple design — maybe some ribbon and flowers. I need bakery recommendations but the cheapest I’ve found is about $500. Help!!

Have you tried Kings Hawaiian.. They are really reasonable and the cake tastes great.. I think they can do buttercream…

King’s Hawaiian is a great option–the only reason we didn’t use them is that we found a place closer to our venue that worked with our caterer. Porto’s gets great recommendations, too.
We used Cake Sensations in South Pasadena and were very happy with looks, taste, and price but perhaps that’s farther away than you want to look. She does buttercream, though.

We used Hansen’s on Fairfax. They are a landmark bakery in Los Angeles and their cake tastes amazing! We chose the simplest/cheapest design and it was $3/per slice so it should fit into your budget. I highly recommend them!

@mrs.lockandkey: Hey, just wanted to let you know that we went with Kings Hawaiian. Thank you soo muh for suggesting!!!
For anyone that’s curious – it was less than $2/slice +tax and delivery came out to about $2.60/slice total and it was exactly what I wanted — three tiered, stacked, ribbon design and gumpaste peonies. And the cake was delicious. Our coordinator said it was the best cake she’s ever had — presentation and taste-wise!!

We are using Susie Cakes (there’s one in Calabassas and 3 more locations closer to the beaches). Enough sheet cake + our own personal cake to cut was just over $300 and their cake is pretty darn tasty!!
