@bells:

I was just going to suggest that.  I was looking for a photo for you.  You could easily and inexpensively make your own cake stands if you wanted to.

Another way to save money is to order a smaller tiered cake that say serves half the guests and place it on a riser.  Then order sheet cakes that will be cut up in the back and your guests will never know!  I was going to do this until I found a bakery that has crazy low prices since they are super busy and have 3 locations.  And it happens to be the same bakery my parents got their cake from 38 years ago…LOL

My cake for 100 people will cost $270 with the delivery charge, 4 tiers with chocolate ganash filling….YUM!  And don’t get that fondant crap.  It’s very expensive and it tastes like garbage!

if I were you I would buy some delicious cakes at the store and stack them. Its sooo not hard and then add flowers or your own accents.  I am baking my own and planning on making a 14″ 10″ and 8″ for 130 people and am considering adding another tier.  I like what bakers call family style slices because a 6 inch in my world would never serve 16-20(max 8 little slices.).LOL

They are talking about big chunky slices.  I think you could feed two people with one slice.  I have 360 guests and I told them 260.  It is still a gigantic  layer cake.  I know that it is not necessary to order 360 based on exprience from other weddings.

@bells: Stacking cake is not hard, but you do need some support. You can use wooden or plastic dowels (wilton sells them) or plastic straws. You have to cut them the same size as the cake. Check out youtube.

my Mother-In-Law makes cakes. A bakery conciders one slice to be 1 inch of cake, although I think after the meal it is plenty it really dosent look like alot. We are having 125 people and are going to get a cake for 200 people so that it looks better plus we want to freeze the top for our anniversary and who dosent like extra cake?
