We have a total of 65 people including us. Our cake is enough for 100. Our friend is charging $165 and that includes delivery. I just found out tonight too that she’s making cuppycakes as well.

You don’t have an option for under $50. Ours is a 4-tier cake for about 175 people, and it’s going to cost us technically $45. It came included in our reception package, but we had a design upgrade for $45. If we chose one of the 100 standard cake designs they offered, it would have been $0! Lol.

I made ours and, because it included fruitcake and because I had to buy equipment, it came to around £400 ($600) for around 420 portions.

My mum’s going to be making ours, so it’ll be much cheaper than getting one made professionally. Not sure how much it’ll come to, but I’ll report back when I know!

Our caterer made our cake and it was included in the price of the meal because we served it fir dessert. We only paid the plating fee of less than $100 since we only had a few guests.
Originally we set our budget at $500 for cake.

we are spending $360 on our 3 tier cake. we budgeted $350 but went $10 over due to all the stenciling and detailing on the cake.

Ours is just over $1,000 – it’s a regular three tier cake to feed 100, and a sheet cake for an additional 70 people.

Because the size of cakes vary, a true apples-to-apples comparison would be the per-slice price.

I think our cake came in at $480. 4 tier, multi fillings/flavors. Our total bill from the baker was $600, but that included pies, cheesecakes, cookies, brownies, and home made whip cream.
It was delicious.

$0!!!!! My MOH’s mother is a cake maker and she wants to do it for free as a gift 😀 She’s still a new wedding cake maker but from what I’ve seen she makes some awesome cakes! She also makes delicious cake!

WE only had a small one for cutting purposes. Our dessert was a buffet included in our catering. The small cake I think was about $75. I dont know how many people it technicallly served, but it was a fair amout although it never would have served the whole wedding.
My DH picked it out and designed it. I think it was a little pricey considering the size and all, but I dont care for cake really. He wanted it.
