Hello bees. I went to a cake tasting with one of my bridesmaids. FHs mother apparently told him that she would like to buy our cake but hasn’t said a word to me. She is pressuring me into getting it from Martins supermarket. No offense, I love Martins cakes but I fell in love with this champagne flavor at a different store. Its my wedding. She keeps talking about her daughter got her cake there and they are so reasonable. Ugh. Btw, has anyone gotten a smaller tier cake and then used sheet cakes in the back to cut the prices down? A 2 tier that serves 50-70 is only $150 compared to the $335 3 tier that serves 120-140. We are approx 120 so I could honestly get a 2 tier and a full sheet which serves 60-80 and prob be ok?? Do u count the higher number to be safe or stick with the lower end for the cake servings?

lrk1203 : Many, many couples choose a small cake for the official cake cutting and have sheet cakes in the back to cut for the guests.

I have 120 guests and I’m doing a 3 tier for display and two round cakes in back (one small one large) for the rest, which is prob the equlivent to a sheet. Iit’s pretty normal to do a smaller display cake with sheet cakes.

I hope you’re able to get the cake you want! We’re only having 60-75 guests, so we’re just doing 2 tiers. I know a lot of people, including my parents, who’ve had 1 or 2 tiers for display and a sheet cake in the back. We would definitely be doing that if we were having more guests!

We’re faking it! We’re doing a 5 tier fake cake where only the bottom layer is real cake; then having a sheet cake in the back that is served. We’re DIYing the fake part too so it’s going to have a “wow” factor with a $200 price tag.
