    Wow, I had a hard time coping with our $600 price tag. $8k?! $80k?!?! That’s bananas!

    Ours is 3 tiers of alternating chocolate and vanilla cake with canoli filling and chocolate buttercream frosting. Our cake also have over 100 hand made and painted fondant leaves as well as ribbon detailing around the case of each tier. 

    It will be just like this except 3 tiers and buttercream frosting instead of fondant…

    I can’t believe the royal wedding cake was that much! Honestly, when I saw it I was like “Meh”.  It’s pretty but not THAT great!

    I haven’t gotten married yet but I don’t want to spend too much on a cake if I can help it.

    I just went to our cake tasting tonight, it’s a lady whom does it out of her home and recommended by many for not only the cake but the price. I’m getting a four tier cake for 250 people for $275!! You can’t beat that!!

    It isn’t the BEST cake I’ve ever had but still very good. You can have each tier a different flavor for no extra charge. Buttercream only which is fine with me. The only complaint I can make is that she doesn’t do fancy stuff like flowers, etc.. out of frosting. Mine will be scroll work on two tiers and swiss dots on the other two with my color ribbon around them. I’m not getting the exact look I wanted but considered other places wanted $1400-$2400 I’m okay with it.

    There is no way I would ever consider paying thousands of dollars for a cake that nobody will even remember. Everyone has their own priorities, this one just wasn’t mine.

    A friend of the family is charging us $200 to make our cake for a little over 200 guests! It will look similar to this but different colors and will have fresh flowers on it too. It’s 4 tiers, each with a layer of chocolate and a layer of vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling and buttercream frosting.

    I’m not sure what ours cost.  A 3 tier cake w/ no filling and a nominal amount of basic frosting flowers was included in our catering package.  We needed to pay $300 more for custom decorations and fruit filling.

    I don’t even like cake. The idea of spending more than $200 on a cake is completely ridiculous to me.
