Whaaaaaa?!?! Where is your hometown?! I have never heard anything that low! I was psyched when we got a small 2-tier cutting cake + 130 cupcakes for $225 (including delivery and set up). But DANG lady, that is an awesome cake price! Have you tried them? Are they tasty? This must be too good to be true 😉

We had enough cake for 125 servings though we only had a 45 guest wedding.

I think the cost was $400 – we just had spackle buttercream frosting and only 1 of the 3 cakes we had had fondant flowers/decor.

Served ~100 and cost $900. Most expensive cake place locally, but I loved it. Beautiful and very very delicious.

$75.00 for this 3 tier.  Made by a lady who makes cakes on the side.

Wow, that’s an amazing deal! Our cake is going to be about $5 per serving from the best bakery in the city. If we went with cupcakes from that bakery instead, it could be $3-4 per serving.

About $700 for a four-tiered cake (though the very top layer was not real) to feed 150 people.

You got a steal! We had 2 cakes, that would serve about 85 people and we paid around 500 for them. No delivery since they were right down the road from our venue!

$150 is such a great price for a 3 tier wedding cake. I would just be worried about the actual quality of the cake though. Will it taste as great as it looks?

Ours is going to be $300 something for our 3 tier cake but that is just because our cake lady does such wonderful work. We wanted a cake that not only looks yummy but taste fantastic as well so whatever she charges us it will be worth every penny.

darian115:  wow that’s amazing! Ours was £460 (which is about $740) for a 4 tier cake with 85-90 servings, a cutting cake to serve 40,a dozen gluten-free cupcakes, delivery, set-up, and cake stand and knife hire. We were actually quite pleased with that price lol
