In Father of the Bride the cake was $1200. 


Not that that helps you… lol.


My aunt is making mine, and she has yet to tell me.

We’re paying a little over $500 for wedding cake and blueberry pie for 100 guests.  I think we ordered too much though — enough cake to feed 75 ppl if cake was the only dessert (we’re going to cut the slices a little smaller to accommodate the additional dessert) plus an additional 13 pies.  I might cut down on the number of pies in the end…

We have gotten quotes between $300 and $500 for 100 people.  The low end quote was for a grocery store bakery and the high end one was for a cheesecake wedding cake.

We are paying $280 for a small cake about 60 servings. So very pricey, but it includes a free cake on our 1st year anniversary.

We’re having a three tiered square cake with almond batter and raspberry filling.  It’s costing us $1.50 a slice, which works out to be $210 for 140 people.

I’m getting married in San Diego, and we got ours for about $340 for 80 people (including delivery, excluding the stand we purchased). There’s no decordation, though – we are providing them with acrylic shapes to cascade down the cake. $500 might be a bit low, but if you went with a grocery store, it may be possible. Our person was middle tier prices – we met with some higher ones, and felt like we were getting ripped off…

I am happy to report that we are not paying a dime!  Our cake is included in our package our reception location.

On the other hand though, the Grooms cake is about $300 for 30 people.  EEEEKKKKK!

We’re buying several regular sized cakes and sheet cakes from the Fresh Market. Hopefully it’ll stay under $100 for 80 people.
