    We did mini cupcakes – about 230 of them in four different flavors, plus two jumbo cupcakes for me and the Mr.  We paid between $350 and $400.

    My cake should feed around 85 people and it’ll be $175. I’m going for a more simple buttercream cake with real flowers. I hear anything with fondant or sugar flowers will jack up the price quickly.

    Luckily my cake was included with my catering contract. They work directly with a famous bakery and include a cake with the package. I was not super crazy particular about a cake anyway, so this definitely worked in my favor! 

    If it weren’t included, I really don’t see myself spending more than $300-500.

    My cake was $400. It served 108. DH’s grooms cake (Denver Bronco Cake) fed 50 ish and was $250 due to the detail.

    The really well known/recommened bakery in my town quoted us $300 for a small two tiered cake, 3 10″round cakes, and a 1/2 sheet groom’s cake. This sounds like a really good deal to me, but what do you guys think? The price included delivery/taxes, etc.

    Ours was $658.00 for bride and groom cakes to feed about 150, and we’ve spent approximately $500.00 on our candy/dessert buffet in addition to that, so we’d better not run out of sweets!
