That is pretty ridiculous by my standards! Jeez. Our three-tier buttercream (WITH design) is less than $400 from a good baker. We’re getting it for $250 because Fiance used to work there, but normally I think it’s $375-ish.

Then again, I’m in GA and you’re in CA. World of difference in prices. Lol. Good luck and ENJOY! Good wedding cake is the best.

@MsNarwhal: That sounds crazy… Have other quotes in your area been that bad?

By the way we’re cake twins. : ) Mine will only be a 1 tier cake for cutting though. I’m going to have to see what my baker says about that being complicated when I show it to her in a few weeks.

Wowzers, that’s nuts! And we thought our 120 person cake with three layers was expensive at $350!

That is crazy our cakes are delicious and we have a 4 tier cake that serves 150 and a grooms cake that serves 50. I designed it myself and its pretty detailed and for both its 517 and some change.. with tax. Keep looking that place was a rip. Good luck. At least you get to taste more cake!!! 🙂

Oh you can try for a better price. Try out skiff’s. That’s our baker. It’s delicious and it’s close to you. I also heard pastries by vreeke is good. They both have better reviews on weddingwire than your place.

UM NOOOOOOOO!! A BUTTERCREAM cake should not cost $850. We paid like, $206 for a three tier buttercream to feed 70. (Two desserts are served with dinner, we thought most people would eat those so we only got enough cake for 2/3 the guests.)
