I think that is a pretty good price. I don’t have a picture of our cake, but it is a three tier, and will cost $423.25 and another $100.00 for delivery.

My cake was $580, for five tiers. It was pretty, but very simple. To reduce the cost I just added ribbon decor, and asked for a fancy tablecloth on the cake table. I don’t think $100 per tier is too bad, actually! Where are you getting married? Some resorts only do “rum cakes”… I’d defs inquire about flavours.

I asked bakers to quote me for:

  • 4 Tiered
  • Smooth Buttercream
  • About 5-7 large sugar anemone flowers
  • Etching design on the side surface
  • This ribbon around the bottom of each tier
  • A filling
  • Deliver + stand

For the above, they ranged from $690-800. One less tier would have been $100 off.

I had another friend that had a very pretty smooth butter cream cake, three-tiered with real flowers, and paid $350ish, but I think they had connections with their baker :0

the bakeries i looked at were all really expensive– for my guest list it would have been between $1000-1500. we ended up getting cupcakes for $500. so your quote sounds totally reasonable to me

Take that price and run with it! It’s a great deal. Ours was $600.

That is definitely a great price!  I got mine for what I considered a very reasonable price compared to all other bakers in the area.  Most wanted $3-$4 per slice.  My cake was $200 for a 3-tier including delivery.  It served about 100 and included neat detailing.
