    Mine was just under 300. It was a 3 tier buttercream cake for 70, with a sheet cake for 25 in the back. We had 75 people at our wedding and tons left over!

    Ours is $620 from a bakery called Montilios, we took the same design to our second choice bakery (Konditor Meister) and they wanted to charge us $785 !

    We got 6 cakes and 6 pies for under $300 CDN.  We had a couple of pies left over.  There was a bit of cake, but it was totally mangled and had been sitting out for a long time so we just tossed it.

    I voted free. It’s actually a few hundred but my venue pays for it.

    We’re having pie instead of cake.  They are $8 a piece (that’s Kansas for you!) so it will end up being about $180.

    I just met with different cake bakers. The cake I want is 4-tier buttercream for 175 guests. Because the flowers on one of the layes are so intricate and labor intensive, I’ve gotten quotes anywhere from $530 to $630. I’m so excited! 🙂 My budget is $500, and this last cake baker is great so we’ll probably just give the extra $100 or so, yay! 🙂

    Also I’m very excited, because each layer will be a different flavor! I chose key lime, spice (basically carrot cake), and red velvet. Yummy!

    We’re having mini cakes for $3 per person. It’s through our venue, and it was supposed to be $4 per person, but they just knocked a dollar off for us for no apparent reason :).

    The cupcakes we’re using are 1.00/each and we’ll probably order 120. I voted for the amount, but the cupcakes are a wedding gift from my aunt.
