@laceydoilies:  Have you considered cupcakes?  Industry standard that I’ve come across with planning so far is $7-$10/serving, not including any sugar flowers or edible decor to the cake.  If you’re not into cupcakes and you don’t have your heart set on a tier cake, you could likely get a baker to make a slab cake within your budget!  Or have a small tier cake for cutting, and have the slab cake in the back for easy cutting and serving and keep the tier for your 1 year anniversary.

I used Cakes by Jessica and she was amazing! We had cupcakes and one small round cake on the top tier of the stans.

We went with Sweet Mama’s Bake Shoppe.

We went with a cake that would feed 50 people (but somehow everybody got a decent slice and we even had leftovers). We paid $5 per slice, which included a tasting.

She did an amazing job, and I would highly recommend her!

Here’s a pic of us cutting the cake (I’m Chinese so I was wearing a red dress):

We used Sarah from Petite Treats and had mini-cupcakes and a small cake. I think we spent just under $300 overall since at the time we got a deal on the price of the mini cupcakes.

We had 80 guests and had ordered 20 dozen mini cupcakes, but considering how many we had leftover, I’d say 10-15 dozen mini cupcakes would have been more than sufficient. Our cake itself was just for me and my husband, and it cost about $30?

If you were looking to just get a cake, based on her pricing, I think you could come in well under your $300 budget with a cake for 80 people.

Here’s the website:

The picture in her gallery with Mickey/Minnie cake topper is our cake/cupcakes 🙂 They were as delicious as they look… so much so we’re considering ordering some cupcakes/cake for just the two of us on our first anniversary.
