Tip of the Day 2-7-2010

Todays tip is about cake. It can be pretty darn expensive for something that will be reduced to cardboard and plastic pillars by the end of the night.

I've recently been given this tip and I thought I would share it with you.

Get your dream cake in a smaller size (enough to feed 20 people) from a fancy bakery.
Like this one from local bakery Xtra Special Cakes:


The smaller cake is just for show, for your pictures and cake cutting ceremony. The majority of the guests can be served from a sheet cake that you purchase at a smaller bakery or even the grocery store bakery that can be decorated with a similar color scheme. The best part is... you can even cut the sheet cake prior to the main cake cutting and it will be all ready to serve when your guests line up. Much faster and can actually save you hundreds of dollars.

Average 3-4 tier wedding cake: about $400*
Smaller 2 tier cake: about $100* plus full sheet cake about $60*

* indicates estimated prices. Contact a bakery in your area for an acurate estimate.
