@MiSsyK:  no I havent but we might be in a similar position having left overs, if you have a fridge in your hotel room can you keep some to eat it the next day & share it with your guests?  Travelling with it on a plane sounds like a lot of work.

We wound up throwing our leftovers out, It sucked but there was no real way to save it. Also I did not pay even half what your paying so it hurt a little less.

@MiSsyK:  So my Future Mother-In-Law was a private duty nurse for the bride’s grandmother about 5 months into our relationship. All she knew about me was that I have gluten issues, as did the groom of this particular wedding. The family transported all of the leftovers back in boxes and gave it to my Future Mother-In-Law to give to me. It was amazing!

I plan on bringing any extra cupcakes to the hotel with me!

@MiSsyK:  We had a 25 person wedding 2 teir cake and had a lot left. We took it to the front desk and gave all the left overs to the staff. I didn’t want to attempt to carry it back….. Too much work!

I like weddingbound‘s idea of giving the leftovers to the hotel staff. I’m sure they would love it!! Other than that, maybe do a little research of the area and see if there is any type of nursing home/shelter around that would accept some delicious cake??

I honestly don’t know if there were leftovers from my cake or what happened to them!  I think I took one bite of my cake and my Darling Husband didn’t even taste it.  I think we could have gone without, but we also had a dessert that was served with dinner.  I don’t think we could have transported cake home with all of the other things I wanted to transport home (my dress, shoes, some decor, guest book, small gifts, etc. etc.).

$400 for a cake for 40 people that’s $10 per slice!!  Really???  Since you are having dessert served at dinner, do a dummy cake with just the top tier real and see if it would be cheaper or maybe a candy buffet table instead

.  That’s a lot of money for a two tiered cake.

I opted for a small cake, and have proper desert menu.
