    I’ll pay 135€ and will choose this design (the cake will be smaller though, because we only need to feed 85 guests):

    Ours was included with our venue, before we had known that we had a set a budget for $500 and that was difficult to find for 200 servings.

    We’re having someone make a cake. Square on separate tiers to feed about 90 – 110 people (projected). I’ll get you photos in about 6 and a half months 😉

    My mom’s best friend from HS (who is a trained pastry chef) made our cake for us as a gift.  It was awesome–tasted great and fit the budget! 🙂

    Oh man, with DIY it’s definitely been a labor of love. All my cake trials so far have been for a reason (someone’s birthday, etc) but it is more costly to do tiered cakes for anyday occasions, and it adds up. In the long run, I still think it will be less expensive for what I can make though.

    I don’t have a picture on my computer, but it’s three tiers, covered in fondant polka dots.  The bottom layer is bright yellow, the middle is light yellow, and the top is white.  It’s $4/serving and serves 185.  I hope there’s leftovers!

    For 180 cupcakes and one giant cupcake, it’s $515. Way more than I wanted to spend, but MrCiarrai wanted it, so that’s what we’re getting. It’s being made by a good friend of his, which is the only reason he’s getting it.

    I’m getting this cake 🙂

    The biggest tier will be white cake with a berries and cream filling and the top two tiers will be butter pecan cake with an italian cream filling.  MMM…  

    That and a miniature grooms cake is going to cost $400 for 100 people.
