    P.S. your poll question is confusing because you are asking two conflicting questions

    $440 is not unheard of for what you’re getting in my area.

    You probably wouldn’t do any better with another baker but it’s always a good idea to do at least two tastings so you can enjoy cake (oh and compare taste and prices.)

    You’re paying roughly $3.25/serving, which is about the common price for cake around here. I’m paying $1.75/serving but am getting the friends and family discount.

    $3.25 per serving for a fondant covered cake, including different flavours is a fantastic price. (as long as the baker can follow it up with well executed design skills, and good tasting cakes).

    $3.24 a slice is a steal.  I’d jump on that.

    @HisNightOwl2014:  It’s a very good price, especially if you love the cake & baker!

    We’re paying £420 ($630) for a 4 tier cake, different flavours, fairly simple decoration, to serve 100, plus a cutting cake to serve 40 and this was average for where we live. So, $440 sounds great to me, but def get a few quotes so you can get an idea of what the average is.

    You could always call around and get a quote on wedding cakes. That’s what I did and ended up saving a lot!

    Yours cost about the same price as mine but mine was 3-tiered! So yes, good deal. And wow lots of chocolate!

    Cakes cost 3-4x as much up here so that sounds great to me!
