Wedding Cake Choices
Awww, who doesnít love
cakes?? I love to go to a wedding and see how nice the wedding
cake is decorated. They are always done so beautifully and so unique.
And picking out your wedding cake is even better. Taste testing,
choosing the decorations, finding out the cost...oh, maybe not finding
out the cost!
Cakes have become so expensive lately, like everything else in
the wedding industry. Inflation, nothing really can be done there. I
guess you have to look at it this way. Cakes are a lot of work,
they probably can be characterized as a piece of art. A yummy piece of
art that is usually completely devoured by the end of the night.
However you look at it, if you want something spectacular, like
everything else in life, you will have to paid for it. And you get what
you pay for. So, if you want something extraordinary you will have to
shell out the dough to get extraordinary. But with that said, there is
other ways to cut the cost for your wedding budget.
The biggest issue with party planning, in this case planning is
wasted food. Cakes are no exception. If you are having your
guests RSVP, have them do so a little earlier than usual so that you can
have a better number for your cake maker. But when it comes to any
reception or party, you will never want to run out of cake. Especially
when its your only desert or food being served. Although not everyone
will want a piece, you will have more people wanting one than not
wanting one, so youíre better to be safe than sorry.
You could however cut costs by having a smaller decorative cake that you
and your significant other can do your cake cutting with but to have
slabís of cake out back which will be served to your guests. This cake
is not decorated, so you are saving money on the time it takes to be
decorated (which is usually a substantial cost cut), and it can save you
time too as it can be pre-cut and ready to serve.
Another way you can cut costs would be to have cupcakes as your cake.
This is a new up incoming thing. It not only cuts costs of purchasing a
big and expensive cake but it also cuts costs substantially! You donít
even need to go to a cake maker to have them make, although they do
provide this service. They are easier to decorate so just about anyone
can do them. You may feel someone in you family could do it or a trusted
friend. Supermarkets or bakeries would also offer this service and
probably at a cheaper rate. Your best bet would be to shop around. Taste
test, make sure you like both the cupcakes and the icing before placing
your order. You will probably want to wait until you have a total number
of guests before placing the order, otherwise you may end up with some
extras, or not enough.
And of course, don't forget about your
cake toppers. This will be your
final addition to your cake. And it will give your cake a little
We hope you have found ways of cutting costs with your cake. Of
course, having a big designer cake is everyone's dream, affordably, this
is not always possible. But there are ways around it and still getting
something you can be happy with. An offering of cake has always been
such a nice way to thank guest for coming and giving their wishes in person.
