Wow, you are looking at an additional $300 for this cake.  Is that really how much you want to spend?  And $6 a cake is really expensive even compared to the expensive cake standards here.  Could you do a photo cake instead?  For my fiance’s birthday I mocked a photo of him onto Phil Dahlhausser’s body(beach volleyball player) and had it printed on the cake.  Everyone loved it!  Thinking of doing the same as a surpise at our Rehearsal Dinner and the bonus is that it should only run around $40.

Hi Atalante…. do you have a hobby lobby by where you live? You might be able to utilize their baking section. They have easy first-timer fondant kits (and other pre-made fondant for those who have used it before). Gel and powder dyed, tons of cool shaped baking tins….I think it’s a much better idea for you to make it yourself (if possible). I know that you’ll have a million things on your plate when that time comes but if you enjoy baking, it might be a good stress reliever! (Also, if you work with a cake that’s a pretty generic shape and have some helpers, it shouldn’t be hard at all). I think it would be a lot to pay all that for an Rehearsal Dinner cake…let us know what you decide!

@atalante: You have actually inspired me to make my groom’s cake too! I think it would be too much to ask someone to make the cake that I want, and I think if I practice a couple times, that it would be completely doable to make.

I wonder how much in advance you can make a cake – that’s probably a weird question but I’m more concerned with the fondant (can you do the fondant cutouts like a week in advance?) If you find any tutorials about that online or info, please share! And good luck 🙂
