Since I am in the area, I think you should shop around. Our cake is only 200…

The only other thing I can think of is to have two cakes: one small tier of sugar free and than the regular cake. You can use to the sugar free one for cutting pictures and not have to worry about fitting it inside, making it less stressful and less time consuming.

My cuz made her own cake. She actually only had one tier of real cake and the rest was foam with sheet cake in the back. It was all frosted to look like a cake. This might also be a good option for you, since you can make the cake tiers and have sugar free tier for cutting…

Cake has just about as much sticker shock as flowers do! 

I didn’t “love” our cake, and to be honest, its probably one of the areas I am most dissapointed with the value it brought to the wedding relative to the cost.  For $600 I feel like I should really love something.  The cake tasted great and Publix didn’t do anything wrong, I just didn’t want to spend the time figuring out exactly what I wanted. 

I think your best bet might be having the bakery make the cake and you guys just do your own sugar free tier for you guys to cut and eat.  

Personally, if you are already trying to DIY your own flowers, I wouldn’t also try to DIY your own cake.
