Firstly, with this article I’m not saying the bakers aren’t skilled, they sure are and they deserve to charge a lot of money for the amazing creations they build. However, if you, like me, are not in the market for one or are interested in spending less on your wedding cake then this is the article for you.
I tried to think of what my friends had for their wedding and I cant recall a single one. I read online that if you don’t recall the details of something at another persons wedding then you probably shouldn’t spend a lot of money on it. I’ve tried to use this approach throughout the planning stage.
So why even have one?
Personally I’m not convinced we even need one but I do want to give guests something sweet to enjoy after food, so if we can save spending money on a separate desert then that works for us!
There are lots of ways to make your wedding cake cheap (chosing buttercream over frosting, having less sugar flowers, skipping the crazy decor etc) however what I’m really interested in is making a ‘normal’ sponge fit for a wedding.
There are several parts of the process that make it more expensive. These include getting it custom made, having multiple cake tasting sessions and requesting an obscure flavour. You can skip all these to make it cheaper.
Ideas For Getting A Cheap Wedding Cake:
Make it yourself
Have someone make you it as a wedding present
Order less tiers
Have a dummy
Order a ‘white’ birthday sponge
Order from a supermarket
