@louisianablue: Mine came out to be $4.50/slice. Personally cake was a priority for me so I didnt mind paying that..plus the cakes that were cheaper that I tried were nearly inedible. If cake doesnt matter have you considered cupcakes?

Our cake was $2.50 a slice, and it was delicious! We thought so, and tons of our guests told us so. We just looked *really* hard to find that hidden gem. Like you, all of the other places we looked at charged $3.50-$5.00 a slice.

Cake also wasn’t our biggest priority. We wanted it to look nice and taste good. It was beautiful and delicious and so affordable, so we were happy!

we paid $610 for 270 people. We had a 3 tier cake with sheet cakes in the kitchen for cutting to make it cheaper…so a little over $2/slice

$4 a slice is how much our cake cost. we had to search high and low to find this baker. She has a small local bakery and her prices were much better than anything we had heard. Most places quoted us $6 per slice or more. Her cake was delicious and well made. it was creamy and rich without being too sweet and she didnt use fondant. A lot of people commented on how yummy the cake was, I’m glad I went with a local bakery

ETA: her slices were huge, we only ordered a cake to feed 75 ppl but it was enough to feed all out guests {175 people} plus we kept the top tier in our freezer

Ours are between 7.50 and 13.00 per slice! And I actually do remember the cake at the weddings I have been to! BUT I am a cake person. I love cake. We recently went to a wedding and when the whole table sat to eat cake everyone was like “OMG best cake ever, taking some home, yadda yadda” But in reality it’s up to you. If you don’t really care about cake, then cut corners. It’s what’s most important to you. Actually, even though our cake is kinda on the pricey side, I have been told by someone else that had the same cake, that it wasn’t the greatest!! It’s really just because of the price of the area.

Why not just get some cheesecakes from the cheesecake factory, and then invest in cute cake toppers and a nice cake stand? Would be more delicious anyways..

We were quoted $3.25, but I think it came to more like $3/slice.

We’re doing cupcakes. They’re $37.50/dozen, so about $3/each. We’re getting 13 dozen, since the company has a policy where if you order 12 dozen, the 13th is free. So we’re getting 156 cupcakes for $450.

We paid $410 for 80 people, so it was like $5 a slice. But we kept the top layer so the numbers don’t add up too well… When I originally looked into my shop it was $4 a slice which is cheap for my area.
