Ours is going to be $450 plus a $50 delivery, so about $500 total for 200 people.  This is our inspiration photo, but our cake will have buttercream rather than fondant.

ours was $300. it’s not a traditional wedding cake, it’s a croquembouche- a french wedding cake made of cream puffs, and it was sooo yummy! we didn’t give them an inspiration, we actually went in asking for cupcakes, but our chef is french so he asked if it would be ok if he made this and we said sure, i’m so glad he mentioned it!

mine is going to be about $650… maybe $700, i forget.   for 150 peeps.  it’s going to be soooo pretty and delicious!!  4 tiers, 2 flavors: “white chocolate raspberry romance” which layers white chocolate whipped cream icing with raspberry jam between layers of white cake, so you get a bright red stripe when you cut into it!  and “opera creme torte” which is yummy chocolate cake with a rich creme filling mmmmm!  here’s the inspiration photo, and the pink part is going to be matched to my ‘maids’s dresses (coral chiffon from j.crew) and will also have a pearlized sheen brushed on.  sooo pretty!  the rest will be matte white buttercream with the pin dots.

These are all beautiful! Artbee, I especially LOVE your croquembouche. I’ve never seen one before. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I aren’t real cake lovers, and just the other day he was suggesting we do pies or cupcakes or a dessert variety plate…I’ll have to show him this too!

… wow, I feel like I’m getting ripped off too! Ours will be about 600 for 130 servings. Our baker is french and makes the best damn icing I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE, though, so it’s worth it for that and the pistachio flavor.

Our cake was very expensive, $700 for 100 servings (so everyone was able to have seconds!). My Maid/Matron of Honor told me that this was pretty average for a high-end cake in the area though, and that her cake had a similar price, so I guess that’s just how it is? :-  It was totally worth it though, because it was the most delicious cake I have ever eaten in my entire life.

It was a vanilla/chocolate marble cake, super soft and moist and yummilicious, and the frosting was I guess buttercream? not fondant, and super sweet and yummy and scrumptious and finger-licking good ^_^

Mmmmmm, wedding cake… *Homer Simpson drool*

I think prices really are dependent on where you live.  I live in Ohio and the highest prices I saw from higher-end bakeries were ~$4.50/serving or so.  I am paying $3/slice (100 people) for a three tiered cake similar to this.  There will be one laker of traditional white cake and two layers of chocolate rush (kind of tastes like chocolate with coffee).  There will be alternating raspberry and mocha filling on each tier.  It will be frosted in buttercream icing (I don’t like fondant).
